# All-order momentum correlations of three ultracold bosonic atoms confined in triple-well traps: Signatures of emergent many-body quantum phase transitions and analogies with three-photon quantum-optics interference

@article{Yannouleas2020AllorderMC, title={All-order momentum correlations of three ultracold bosonic atoms confined in triple-well traps: Signatures of emergent many-body quantum phase transitions and analogies with three-photon quantum-optics interference}, author={Constantine Yannouleas and Uzi Landman}, journal={Physical Review A}, year={2020} }

All-order momentum correlation functions associated with the time-of-flight spectroscopy of three spinless ultracold bosonic interacting neutral atoms confined in a linear three-well optical trap are presented. The underlying Hamiltonian employed for the interacting atoms is an augmented three-site Hubbard model. Our investigations target matter-wave interference of massive particles, aiming at the establishment of experimental protocols for characterizing the quantum states of trapped…
