Quantum Correlations in Bose Condensates

February 22, 2019

This research, led by graduate student Lei Feng, showed a new correlation pattern in the k space that emerge from quantum fluctuations in a uniform Bose condensate. They amplified the fluctuations parametrically which gave rise to cascaded scatterings that ejected atoms in all directions. Using pattern recognition, they observed the hidden correlation.
