Abstract

We derive the exact explicit analytical expressions of incident and diffracted atom lasers and their difference in phase from the Bragg diffraction of an atom laser from an optical standing wave in the presence of two-body atomic interactions. These expressions demonstrate that two-body atomic interactions may significantly affect the Bragg diffraction of an atom laser from an optical standing wave, and they provide a convenient basis for discussing and designing the future Bragg devices of strong atom lasers.
