We examine the properties of an atom laser produced by outcoupling from a Bose-Einstein condensate with squeezed light. We model the multimode dynamics of the output field and show that a significant amount of squeezing can be transferred from an optical mode to a propagating atom laser beam. We use this to demonstrate that two-mode squeezing can be used to produce twin atom laser beams with continuous variable entanglement in amplitude and phase. 
Squeezed Atom Laser for Bose-Einstein Condensate with Minimal Length
We study a protocol for constructing a squeezed atom laser for a model originating from the generalized uncertainty principle. We show that the squeezing effects arising from such systems do not

Quantum Dynamics of a Raman Atom Laser by Using a Feshbach-Resonance-Tuned Atomic Bose-Einstein Condensate
We study a Raman atom laser output coupler by considering a Feshbach-resonance-tuned atomic Bose-Einstein condensate which is often viewed as a dilute system since the collisions can be tuned.

A simple model is introduced to describe how an optical two-photon Raman transition is used to split the condensate into two modes, and it is found that by processing this information in an appropriate way, the phase sensitivity of atom interferometry can be enhanced by more than a factor of 10 for realistic parameters.
Ramsey interferometry with an atom laser.
This system is well suited to testing recent proposals for generating and detecting squeezed atomic states, and the current and the potentially achievable interferometric phase sensitivity are determined.
Multi-Spatial-Mode Squeezed Light from Four-Wave Mixing in Hot Rb Vapor
We demonstrate multi-spatial-mode, nondegenerate four-wave mixing in hot atomic Rb vapor. We generate images with strong intensity-difference squeezing between the amplified probe and the generated
A two-state Raman coupler for coherent atom optics.
A Raman laser-system that resonantly drives a closed two-photon transition between two levels in different hyperfine ground states of (87)Rb is presented, taking the next major step towards free space Ramsey interferometry with an atom laser.


Quantum-dynamical theory for squeezing the output of a Bose-Einstein condensate
A linear quantum dynamical theory for squeezing the output of the trapped Bose-Einstein condensate is presented with the Bogoliubov approximation. We observe that the non-classical properties, such
We demonstrate a continuous output coupler for magnetically trapped atoms. Over a period of up to 100 ms a collimated and monoenergetic beam of atoms is continuously extracted from a Bose- Einstein
Output Coupler for Bose-Einstein Condensed Atoms
We have demonstrated an output coupler for Bose condensed atoms in a magnetic trap. Short pulses of rf radiation were used to create Bose condensates in a superposition of trapped and untrapped
A well-collimated quasi-continuous atom laser
Extraction of sodium atoms from a trapped Bose-Einstein condensate (BEC) by a coherent, stimulated Raman process is demonstrated and the extracted atomic wave packets strongly overlap, forming a highly directional, quasi-continuous matter wave.
Quantum optics of a Bose-Einstein condensate coupled to a quantized light field
We consider the interaction between a Bose-Einstein condensate and a single-mode quantized light field in the presence of a strong far-off-resonant pump laser. The dynamics is characterized by an
Observation of Interference Between Two Bose Condensates
It is demonstrated that Bose condensed atoms are “laser-like”; that is, they are coherent and show long-range correlations and have direct implications for the atom laser and the Josephson effect for atoms.
Atom laser divergence.
This work measures the angular divergence of a quasicontinuous, rf-outcoupled, free-falling atom laser as a function of the outcoupling frequency and finds that the dominant source of divergence is the condensate-laser interaction.
All-optical realization of an atom laser
A Bose-Einstein condensate with atoms in a magnetic field-insensitive spin projection was created by direct evaporative cooling in a single-beam optical dipole trap to realize a novel type of atom laser.
Output coupling of a Bose-Einstein condensate formed in a TOP trap
Two distinct mechanisms are investigated for transferring a pure 87Rb Bose-Einstein condensate in the |F = 2, mF = 2 state into a mixture of condensates in all the mF states within the F = 2
Squeezing and entanglement of atomic beams.
We propose and analyze a scheme for generating entangled atomic beams out of a Bose-Einstein condensate using spin-exchanging collisions. In particular, we show how to create both atomic squeezed
