  • Correlation of arrival times of metastable helium atoms is consistent with long-range coherence to higher orders. A major advance in understanding the behavior of light was to describe the coherence of a light source by using correlation functions that define the spatio-temporal relationship between pairs and larger groups of photons. Correlations are also a fundamental property of matter. We performed simultaneous measurement of the second- and third-order correlation functions for atoms. Atom… CONTINUE READING
