Title: Investigation and comparison of multistate and two-state atom laser-output couplers

Abstract

We investigate the spatial structure and temporal dynamics created in a Bose-Einstein condensate by radio-frequency atom laser-output couplers using a one-dimensional mean-field model. We compare the behavior of a 'pure' two-state atom laser to the multilevel systems demonstrated in laboratories. In particular, we investigate the peak homogeneous output flux, classical fluctuations in the beam, and the onset of a bound state which shuts down the atom laser output.
