  • Free-standing, axially-symmetric diffraction gratings for neutral matter-waves: experiments and fabrication 

    Reisinger, Thomas (The University of Bergen, 2011-10-04)
    Since de Broglie’s famous postulation of the wave-nature of material particles and its subsequent experimental verification, it is known that atoms and molecules behave like waves on a small scale. The investigation of ...

  • Nanostructuring of free-standing, dielectric membranes using electron-beam lithography 

    Grepstad, Jon Olav; Greve, Martin Møller; Reisinger, Thomas; Holst, Bodil (American Institute of Physics, 2013)
    Nanostructured dielectric membranes are used in several applications ranging from de Broglie matter-wave optical elements to photonic crystals. Precise pattern transfer and high aspect ratio structures are crucial for ...

  • Neutral atom and molecule focusing using a Fresnel zone plate 

    Reisinger, Thomas; Holst, Bodil (American Institute of Physics, 2008)
    Focusing of neutral atoms and molecules has several potential applications. The very first microscopy images using helium as an imaging probe were published earlier this year. Another possible application is to study the ...

  • Particle–wave discrimination in Poisson spot experiments 

    Reisinger, Thomas; Bracco, Gianangelo; Holst, Bodil (IOP Publishing Ltd, 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 ...

  • Poisson’s spot with molecules 

    Reisinger, Thomas; Patel, Amil A.; Reingruber, Herbert; Fladischer, Katrin; Ernst, Wolfgang E.; Bracco, Gianangelo; Smith, Henry I.; Holst, Bodil (The American Physical Society, 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 ...
