9.2. Atomic Interferometer With Gravitational Field

We reestablish the route presented: consider an interferometer Atomic - three levels denoted and ( - intermediate state) subjected to a sequential pulse Raman-Rabi-Ramsey.

Total Hamiltonian will have the operational form (Lämmerzahl 1994, 1996; Lämmerzahl & Bordé 1995):

(9.1)-impulse operators, position; - the energy of the level for the Atomic system; - dipole operator; - electric field; - dipole-external field interaction; - Newtonian potential.

We will develop the second order Newtonian potential
