Momentum shearing interferometry of electron waves

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingPaper in conference proceeding

Abstract

We analyse recent experiments on momentum shearing interferometry of electron wave packets<sup>1,2</sup> by using an optical analogy with shearing interferometry for optical waves. This analogy offers a convenient point of view to discuss the capabilities and difficulties of this technique used to access the phase of electron wave packets.
