Quantum kinetic theory model of a continuous atom laser

Dennis, Graham; Davis, Matthew John; Hope, Joseph


We investigate the feasible limits for realizing a continuously evaporated atom laser with high-temperature sources. A plausible scheme for realizing a truly continuous atom laser is to outcouple atoms from a partially condensed Bose gas while continuously reloading the system with noncondensed thermal atoms and performing evaporative cooling. Here we use quantum kinetic theory to model this system and estimate feasible limits for the operation of such a scheme. For sufficiently high...[Show more]
