Abstract

We propose a new coherent atomic beam splitter that is based on the induced redistribution of photons in the intense field of two collinear standing waves with different frequencies. In the dressed-atom approach, we show that this scheme can provide a clear large-angle splitting into two components without being restricted to the Raman–Nath regime.
