Transition state theory for wave packet dynamics and its application to thermal decay of metastable nonlinear Schrödinger systems
- Marco Andrej Junginger, Holger Waalkens
An ongoing challenge in physics is to make increasingly accurate measurements of physical quantities. Bose-Einstein condensates in atomic gases are ideal candidates for use in precision measurement schemes since they are extremely cold and have laser-like coherence properties. In this paper, we review these two attributes and discuss how they could be exploited to improve the resolution in a range of different measurements.
