Abstract

The wave mixing of optical pulses and Bose-Einstein Condensates was studied. The diffraction pattern was interpreted in terms of atom-photon wave mixing. The results show that the quantum-correlated parametric excitation of atomic pairs generated the forward and backward propagation matter waves.
