I am spending some time reading about Bose-Einstein condensation. I want to know if it is possible to use atom lasers to realize the kind of holography traditionally associated with nano-fabrication.
Many papers say that the motivation for BEC is the aforementioned holography, but I can't find if they were able to actually realize it. I am very much a novice at searching through academic literature.
The closest I have found is the work of some Japanese scientists in the 90s who were able to make 2D hologram, without a laser style beam.
Does anybody know if it was done, or possible can comment on some of the challenges.
