Data for: "Talbot-enhanced, maximum-visibility imaging of condensate interference"



The dataset contains the experimental and theoretical results corresponding to the figures in the publication titled ‘Talbot-enhanced, maximum-visibility imaging of condensate interference'.

Data in includes the csv file of image a, as well as the csv files (three for each drop time, denoted in milliseconds) used to determine the period of fringes in Figure 1c.
The data in are csv files of the theoretical spatial matrix of phase and optical density values used to generate Fig2a,d, and b,e, respectively. Files denoted 'black' are the resonant images used in the figure, whereas 'red' and 'blue' files correspond to the data for red and blue detuned light. These files are used to generate the visibility curves in Figc,f.
Data for Fig3,4,5 (zipped in rar format) consist of absorption images (with three repetitions of the same shot) of interfering atom clouds which demonstrate the spatial Talbot effect for light interacting with periodic Bose-Einstein condensate interference fringes. Sub-folders indicate the drop time (ms), the detuning (132,136 and 140MHz correspond to -4,0, 4MHz detuning of the Zeeman shifted |2,2>-|3,3> absorption imaging transition), or the CCD camera position (mm).
Data was produced following the methods outlined in the corresponding paper and were analysed using a combination of Matlab and Mathematica to produce the figures within the paper.

The data are saved as CSVs and organised in zipped folders according to figure.

Data is produced with funding from EPSRC, DSTL and Leverhulme Trust.
