Title: Interferences in the Density of Two Bose-Einstein Condensates Consisting of Identical or Different Atoms

Abstract

The density of two initially independent condensates which are allowed to expand and overlap can show interferences as a function of time due to interparticle interaction. Two situations are separately discussed and compared: (1) all atoms are identical and (2) each condensate consists of a different kind of atoms. Illustrative examples are presented.
