Quasi-synaptic Effect to Control the Cold Matter Transfer

Guennadi Kouzaev, Karl Jacob Sand


In this paper an electronically controlled cold atom transfer is considered. Two atom streams are guided by wires carrying the DC and RF currents. The trapping areas can touch each other under certain critical values of these currents. At the touching point the atoms are transferred from one wire to another that reminiscent the synaptic effect in the brain. The discovered effect is applicable in quantum interferometry and controlled atom transfer.
