Endoscopic imaging of quantum gases through a fiber bundle

Dataset

Description

We use a coherent fiber bundle to demonstrate the endoscopic absorption imaging of quantum gases.We show that the fiber bundle introduces spurious noise in the picture mainly due to the strong core-to-core coupling. By direct comparison with free-space pictures, we observe that there is a maximum column density that can be reliably measured using our fiber bundle, and we derive a simple criterion to estimate it. We demonstrate that taking care of not exceeding such maximum, we can retrieve exact quantitative information about the atomic system, making this technique appealing for systems requiring isolation form the environment.
