Quantum theory of matter-wave detection

Whitlock, N K and Cresser, J D and Barnett, S M and Jeffers, J (2005) Quantum theory of matter-wave detection. Journal of Physics B: Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics, 38 (17). pp. 3117-3128. ISSN 0953-4075

We derive a quantum theory of matter-wave detection from microscopic considerations. We calculate both the short-time approximation and the longtime correction to the detection rate of matter waves. The detection rate can be related to the flux of the matter waves through a detector medium.
