Abstract

We study <sup>87</sup>Rb Bose-Einstein condensation (BEC) loading into the pulse of the one-dimensional (1D) optical lattice experimentally. The lattice is turned on abruptly, held constant for a variable time, and then turned off abruptly. The measurement of the depth of the optical lattice is obtained by Kapitza-Dirac scattering. The temporal matter-wave-dispersion Talbot effect with <sup>87</sup>Rb BEC is observed by applying a pair of pulsed standing waves (as pulsed phase gratings) with the separation of a variable delay.
