Abstract

We have used a Gaussian standing-wave atom-optical lens to focus a thermal atomic beam. We examine the effect of variations in the intensity profile along the direction of the atomic beam on the performance of our atom-optical lens. For a constant focal-length atom-optical lens, we find that the resolution and contrast of the standing-wave lens are independent of the intensity profile.
