Extended Source Interferometry in the Compact Regime
Bruno M. Pelle, Gregory W. Hoth, Stefan Riedl, John E. Kitching, Elizabeth A. Donley
We present an atom interferometer based on an expanding cloud of laser-cooled atoms sensitive to rotations along two axes and acceleration along one axis in an effective volume of 1 cm3. We observed spatially resolved fringes by imaging the expanding cloud after short free-fall durations. If the atom cloud does not start as a point source, a bias is introduced in the scale factor that differs from the simple point-source limit. We explored the scale factor deviation experimentally with different initial cloud sizes and will present our understanding of this important systematic.
