Collapse of atomic motion in a quantized cavity mode

Abstract

The state of a quantized single-mode cavity field strongly influences the motion of atomic wave packets trapped into the optical potential that it provides, to the point where the atomic motion can be effectively "frozen" for long periods of time. This effect, which should not be confused with cooling, is reminiscent of the collapse and revivals phenomena familiar from the Jaynes-Cummings model.
