The difference between a photon's momentum and an atom's recoil

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

We analyze the recoil shift for atoms in Gaussian laser beams and microwave cavities. The frequency shifts from the transverse photon recoils must be understood for the most accurate atom interferometers and atomic fountain clocks.
