We present an experimentally viable approach to demonstrating quantum non-locality in a matter wave system via a Rarity-Tapster interferometer using two s -wave scattering halos generated by colliding helium Bose-Einstein condensates. The theoretical basis for this method is discussed, and its suitability is experimentally quantified. As a proof of concept, we demonstrate an interferometric visibility of V = 0 . 42(9), corresponding to a maximum CSHS-Bell parameter of S = 1 . 1(1), for the…

Solving the Quantum Many-Body Problem via Correlations Measured with a Momentum Microscope.

This paper measures multiparticle momentum correlations up to third order between ultracold helium atoms in an s-wave scattering halo of colliding Bose-Einstein condensates, using a quantum many-body momentum microscope and demonstrates a record violation of the classical Cauchy-Schwarz inequality for correlated atom pairs and triples.

Experimental violation of Bell's inequality based on phase and momentum.

Two-color photon pairs are selected by two double apertures placed to satisfy the phase-matching conditions at a down-conversion crystal and coincident two-photon detections are measured.

Proposal for a motional-state Bell inequality test with ultracold atoms

In the simplest approximation, the process of spontaneous four-wave mixing via condensate collisions produces a multi-mode analog of the two-mode squeezed vacuum state. Such a state exhibits

High-precision gravity measurements using atom interferometry

We have built an atom interferometer that can measure g, the local acceleration due to gravity, with a resolution of Δg/g = 2 × 10−8 after a single 1.3 s measurement cycle, 3 × 10−9 after 1 min and 1

Trap frequency measurement with a pulsed atom laser.

We describe a novel method of single-shot trap frequency measurement for a confined Bose-Einstein Condensate, which uses an atom laser to repeatedly sample the mean velocity of trap oscillations as a

Using an Atom Interferometer to Infer Gravitational Entanglement Generation

If gravitational perturbations are quantized into gravitons in analogy with the electromagnetic field and photons, the resulting graviton interactions should lead to an entangling interaction between

Two-Particle Interference with Double Twin-Atom Beams.

This work describes a source for correlated pairs of atoms characterized by two opposite momenta and two spatial modes forming a Bell state only involving external degrees of freedom and demonstrates genuine two-particle interference in the normalized second-order correlation function g(2) relative to the emitted atoms.

Entanglement-based 3D magnetic gradiometry with an ultracold atomic scattering halo

Ultracold collisions of Bose–Einstein condensates can be used to generate a large number of counter-propagating pairs of entangled atoms, which collectively form a thin spherical shell in momentum

Ultracold Atoms for Foundational Tests of Quantum Mechanics

This thesis presents a theoretical investigation into the creation and exploitation of quantum correlations and entanglement among ultracold atoms. Specifically, it focuses on these non-classical
