  • We show that Raman outcoupling can produce atom lasers whose quality is only limited by the wave function shape of the condensate that produces them, typically a factor of 1.3 above the Heisenberg limit. Updates 2009

  • We show that Raman outcoupling can eliminate the diverging lens effect that the condensate has on the outcoupled atoms. Updates 2009

  • However, such methods are difficult to implement in terahertz semiconductor lasers because of their poor outcoupling efficiencies.
