Feasibility of squeezing measurements with cavity-based atom detection

Poldy, Rachel; Buchler, Benjamin; Altin, Paul; Robins, Nicholas; Close, John


We numerically analyze the quantum efficiency and dark noise of a cavity-based single-atom detector, with particular emphasis on the ability to measure number squeezing in an atom-laser beam. We consider the influence of the electric-dipole force on an atom in a red-detuned detection beam and discuss the much improved detection efficiency for detuned probe beams, with respect to resonant probes, resulting from this influence. Cavities allow real-time monitoring of atomic flux, with single-atom...[Show more]
