Quantum-resonance ratchets associated with the kicked particle are experimentally realized for arbitrary quasimomentum using a Bose-Einstein condensate (BEC) exposed to a pulsed standing light wave. The ratchet effect for general quasimomentum arises even though both the standing-wave potential and the initial state of the BEC have a point symmetry. The… (More)

We report measurements of dynamical tunneling rates of a Bose-Einstein condensate across a barrier in classical phase space. The atoms are initially prepared in quantum states that extend over a classically regular island region. We focus on the specific system of quantum accelerator modes of the kicked rotor in the presence of gravity. Our experimental… (More)

We present detailed observations of the quantum delta-kicked rotor in the vicinity of a quantum resonance. Our experiment consists of an ensemble of cold cesium atoms subject to a pulsed off-resonant standing wave of light. We measure the mean energy and show clearly that at the quantum resonance it is a local maximum. We also examine the effect of noise on… (More)

We experimentally and numerically investigate the quantum accelerator mode dynamics of an atom optical realization of the quantum delta-kicked accelerator, whose classical dynamics are chaotic. Using a Ramsey-type experiment, we observe interference, demonstrating that quantum accelerator modes are formed coherently. We construct a link between the behavior… (More)

We experimentally explore the underlying pseudoclassical phase space structure of the quantum-kicked accelerator. This was achieved by exposing a Bose-Einstein condensate to the spatially corrugated potential created by pulses of an off-resonant standing light wave. For the first time quantum accelerator modes were realized in such a system. By utilizing… (More)

We describe measurements of the mean energy of an ensemble of laser-cooled atoms in an atom optical system in which the cold atoms, falling freely under gravity, receive approximate delta-kicks from a pulsed standing wave of laser light. We call this system a "delta-kicked accelerator." Additionally, we can counteract the effect of gravity by appropriate… (More)

A theory of quantum ratchets for a particle periodically kicked by a general periodic potential under quantum-resonance conditions is developed for arbitrary values of the conserved quasi-momentum β. A special case of this theory is experimentally realized using a Bose–Einstein condensate (BEC) exposed to a pulsed standing light wave. While this case… (More)

We experimentally investigate the sub-Fourier behavior of a δ-kicked-rotor resonance by performing a measurement of the fidelity or overlap of a Bose-Einstein condensate exposed to a periodically pulsed standing wave. The temporal width of the fidelity resonance peak centered at the Talbot time and zero initial momentum exhibits an inverse cube pulse number… (More)

We present a general, semi-classical theory describing the interaction of an atom with an internal state consisting of a number of degenerate energy levels with static and oscillating magnetic fields. This general theory is applied to the 3 P 2 metastable energy level of neon to determine the dynamics of the populations and coherences that are formed due to… (More)
