Multi-Body Interactions & Quantum Phase Revivals

Collapse and revival of the matter wave field: The quantum dynamics of Bose-Einstein condensates trapped in an optical lattice reveal exotic multi-body interactions. The image shows a sequence of interference patterns of the atomic samples recorded in steps of 40 microseconds. A single cycle of the dynamics is highlighted (blue-orange).
