Atom Holography at Light Structures
  DOI :  10.2352/J.ImagingSci.Technol.1997.41.4.art00004  Published OnlineJuly 1997

We present diffraction experiments where the roles of light and material are inverted with respect to usual holography. Atomic matter waves are diffracted at grating structures composed of standing light waves. In contrast to material holograms, our light gratings can be manipulated during the passage of an atomic matter wave, resulting in new diffraction features. We demonstrate similarities and differences between material and light holograms.
