Light scattering from ultracold atomic gases

Abstract:

Systems of ultracold atoms in optical potentials have taken a place at the forefront of research into many-body atomic systems because of the clean experimental environment they exist in and the tunability of the system parameters. In this thesis we study how light scattered from these ultracold atomic gases reveals information about the state of the atomic gas and also leads to changes in that state.

We begin by investigating the angular dependence of light scattered from atoms in o...
