# Light shifts in atomic Bragg diffraction

@article{Giese2016LightSI, title={Light shifts in atomic Bragg diffraction}, author={Enno Giese and Alexander Friedrich and Sven Abend and Ernst Maria Rasel and Wolfgang P. Schleich}, journal={Physical Review A}, year={2016}, volume={94} }

Bragg diffraction of an atomic wave packet in a retroreflective geometry with two counterpropagating optical lattices exhibits a light shift induced phase. We show that the temporal shape of the light pulse determines the behavior of this phase shift: In contrast to Raman diffraction, Bragg diffraction with Gaussian pulses leads to a significant suppression of the intrinsic phase shift due to a scaling with the third power of the inverse Doppler frequency. However, for box-shaped laser pulses…

It is shown that in contrast to the diffraction patterns, the interference signal of an atom interferometer with light-pulse beam splitters and mirrors in intense coherent states does approach the limit of classical fields, but low photon numbers reveal the granular structure of light, leading to a reduced visibility.
