Title: Comment on 'Periodic structures generated in a cloud of cold atoms'

Abstract

We consider calculations for maximum visibility of the atomic fringe pattern generated by optical phase gratings presented by Strekalov et al. It is shown that the phase grating technique offers higher maximum visibilities for the atomic fringe patterns than those calculated by the authors.
