Precision Interferometry with Bose-Einstein Condensates
This dissertation describes the creation of the first matter-wave interferometer using ytterbium (Yb) atoms. Most of the experiments focus on a contrast interferometer geometry with a Bose-Einstein condensate (BEC) as source. The recoil frequency of the 174-Yb atom is measured with this interferometer. The recoil frequency ...
