Atomic-position localization via dual measurement Academic Article uri icon


  • The atomic-position localization by the dual measurement, both the field and the atomic internal state measurements, compared to the field measurement alone was investigated. As such, the localization was improved by the dual-measurement scheme. It was shown that although the localization exploiting the interaction with the standing-wave field at far-off resonance inevitably brings about the momentum uncertainty by the mechanical action of the dipole force origin, Popper's test can be nevertheless implemented in the schemes in which the atomic internal state was definite inside the standing-wave field.
