Matter-wave scattering on a BEC in a double-well potential Academic Article uri icon


  • Abstract We study the inelastic scattering of a probe particle on a Bose-Einstein condensate confined in a double-well potential. We identify prominent signatures of the underlying mean- field phase space in the scattering signal and derive an analytical expression for the inelastic scattering cross section.
