The atomic waveplate

Kuffner, Peter


In this thesis, we theoretically model the behaviour of atoms outcoupled from an atom laser passing through an RF resonance. Within the Landau-Zener formalism, we find a range for the Rabi frequency of the RF field, inside of which dynamical spin transitions occur. We find that atoms exiting the resonance region exhibit symmetric transition into trapped and untrapped spin states. A further numerical model, within the mean field approximation, is performed for an atomic pulse from an atom laser...[Show more]
