General limit to nondestructive optical detection of atoms

Hope, Joseph; Close, John


We demonstrate that there is a fundamental limit to the sensitivity of phase-based detection of atoms with light for a given maximum level of allowable spontaneous emission. This is a generalization of previous results for two- and three-level atoms. The
