Interference of two molecular bose einstein condensates

Analysing different system sizes, we observe the crossover from thermal to quantum noise, reflected

in a characteristic change in the distribution functions from poissonian to Gumbel type, in excellent agreement with theoretical

predictions on the basis of the Luttinger-liquid formalism. We present the first experimental observation of quasi-long-range order

in one-dimensional atomic condensates,

  • Interference of atomic Bose condensates

  • A powerful tool to study Bose gases

  • Interference meets Fermi gases

  • Interesting challenges
