Single-Atom Source in the Picokelvin Regime

Manning, Andrew; Khakimov, Roman; Dall, Robert; Truscott, Andrew


An important aspect of the rapidly growing field of quantum atom optics is exploring the behavior of ultracold atoms at a deeper level than the mean field approximation, where the quantum properties of individual atoms becomes important. Major recent advances have been achieved with the creation and detection of reliable single-atom sources, which is a crucial tool for testing fundamental quantum processes. Here, we create a source comprised of a single ultracold metastable helium atom, which...[Show more]
