Lattice-depth measurement using continuous grating atom diffraction (2019)
Journal Article
Beswick, B. T., Hughes, I. G., & Gardiner, S. A. (2019). Lattice-depth measurement using continuous grating atom diffraction. Physical Review A, 100(6), Article 063629. https://doi.org/10.1103/physreva.100.063629

We propose an approach to characterizing the depths of optical lattices, in which either an atomic gas is given a finite initial momentum or, alternatively, a corresponding “walking” configuration is applied to the optical lattice itself. This leads... Read More about Lattice-depth measurement using continuous grating atom diffraction.

Lattice-depth measurement using multipulse atom diffraction in and beyond the weakly diffracting limit (2019)
Journal Article
Beswick, B. T., Hughes, I. G., & Gardiner, S. A. (2019). Lattice-depth measurement using multipulse atom diffraction in and beyond the weakly diffracting limit. Physical Review A, 99(1), Article 013614. https://doi.org/10.1103/physreva.99.013614

Precise knowledge of optical lattice depths is important for a number of areas of atomic physics, most notably in quantum simulation, atom interferometry, and for the accurate determination of transition matrix elements. In such experiments, lattice... Read More about Lattice-depth measurement using multipulse atom diffraction in and beyond the weakly diffracting limit.

epsilon-pseudoclassical model for quantum resonances in a cold dilute atomic gas periodically driven by finite-duration standing-wave laser pulses (2016)
Journal Article
Beswick, B., Hughes, I., Gardiner, S., Astier, H., Andersen, M., & Daszuta, B. (2016). epsilon-pseudoclassical model for quantum resonances in a cold dilute atomic gas periodically driven by finite-duration standing-wave laser pulses. Physical Review A, 94(6), Article 063604. https://doi.org/10.1103/physreva.94.063604

Atom interferometers are a useful tool for precision measurements of fundamental physical phenomena, ranging from the local gravitational-field strength to the atomic fine-structure constant. In such experiments, it is desirable to implement a high-m...
