Third-order spatial correlations for ultracold atoms
We present here the first measurement of the third-order spatial correlation function for atoms, made possible by cooling a metastable helium cloud to create an ultracold thermal ensemble just above the Bose-Einstein condensation point. The resulting large correlation length well exceeds the spatial resolution limit of the single-atom detection system, and enables extension of our earlier temporal measurements to evaluate the third-order correlation function in the spatial plane of the...[Show more]
