Paper Abstract

The method of Bragg scattering from a standing light wave for splitting atoms coherently into two beams is discussed. An interferometer for atoms is demonstrated by Bragg deflection of a beam of collimated metastable neon atoms from three standing light waves. Possibility of using the interferometer in nanolithography is discussed.
