Open Access research with a European policy impact...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC).

EPRC is a leading institute in Europe for comparative research on public policy, with a particular focus on regional development policies. Spanning 30 European countries, EPRC research programmes have a strong emphasis on applied research and knowledge exchange, including the provision of policy advice to EU institutions and national and sub-national government authorities throughout Europe.

Abstract

We use a Fano diagonalization technique to find the eigenmodes of an atom laser consisting of a single-mode atomic cavity that is coherently coupled to the continuum of free space modes. Under very general conditions the system exhibits a single, stationary bound mode. We discuss the properties of this bound mode depending on the system parameters and investigate its effect on the output beam of the atom laser.
