Abstract

We calculate the recombination probability for an atom interferometric experiment in which the beams interfere after one of them has been exposed to an intense laser. We choose a model one-dimensional atomic potential and find that if the intensity of the laser is large, there are recurrences in the recombination probability as a function of time, irrespective of the frequency of excitation. This implies that the particles exposed to the laser have a large amplitude to be in the localized initial state in spite of having sufficient energy to escape from the binding potential. © 1995 The American Physical Society.
