We present a detailed study of an atom interferometer which can be realized in a double-well potential. We assume that the interferometric phase is imprinted in the presence of coherent tunneling between the wells. We calculate the ultimate bounds for the estimation sensitivity and show how they relate to the precision of the Mach-Zehnder interferometer. The interferometer presented here allows for sub shot-noise sensitivity when fed with the spin-squeezed states with reduced either the…

Many-body quantum metrology with scalar bosons in a single potential well

We theoretically investigate the possibility of performing high precision estimation of an externally imposed acceleration using scalar bosons in a single-well trap. We work at the level of a

Classical and quantum metrology of the Lieb-Liniger model

We study the classical and quantum Fisher information for the Lieb-Liniger model. The Fisher information has been studied extensively when the parameter is inscribed on a quantum state by a unitary

Number-phase uncertainty and quantum dynamics of bosons and fermions interacting with a finite range and large scattering length in a double-well potential

In a previous paper, Das et al (2013 J. Phys. B: At. Mol. Opt. Phys. 46 035501), it was shown that the unitary quantum phase operators play a particularly important role in quantum dynamics of bosons
