Direct Measurement of Long-Range Third-Order Coherence in Bose-Einstein Condensates

Hodgman, Sean; Dall, Robert; Manning, Andrew; Truscott, Andrew; Baldwin, Kenneth


A major advance in understanding the behavior of light was to describe the coherence of a light source by using correlation functions that define the spatio-temporal relationship between pairs and larger groups of photons. Correlations are also a fundamental property of matter. We performed simultaneous measurement of the second- and third-order correlation functions for atoms. Atom bunching in the arrival time for pairs and triplets of thermal atoms just above the Bose-Einstein condensation...[Show more]
