• Particle–wave discrimination in Poisson spot experiments 

      Reisinger, Thomas; Bracco, Gianangelo; Holst, Bodil (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2011)
      Matter–wave interferometry has been used extensively over the last few years to demonstrate the quantum-mechanical wave nature of increasingly larger and more massive particles. We have recently suggested the use of the ...
    • Poisson’s spot with molecules 

      Reisinger, Thomas; Patel, Amil A.; Reingruber, Herbert; Fladischer, Katrin; Ernst, Wolfgang E.; Bracco, Gianangelo; Smith, Henry I.; Holst, Bodil (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2009)
      In the Poisson-spot experiment, waves emanating from a source are blocked by a circular obstacle. Due to their positive on-axis interference an image of the source the Poisson spot is observed within the geometrical shadow ...
    • Velocity distributions in microskimmer supersonic expansion helium beams: High precision measurements and modeling 

      Eder, Sabrina Daniela; Palau, Adria Salvador; Kaltenbacher, Thomas; Bracco, Gianangelo; Holst, Bodil (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2018)
      Supersonic molecular beams are used in many applications ranging from spectroscopy and matter wave optics to surface science. The experimental setup typically includes a conically shaped, collimating aperture, the skimmer. ...
