 Title    Transverse Momentum Distribution of Atoms in an Interferometer  
 Abstract    From the stationary solution o f Schrödinger's equation in an interferometer we derive the wave functions of the longitudinal and the transverse motion. The former function is a plane wave. The wave function of the transverse motion is a one dimensional wave packet representing a super­ position of components with various values of the particles transverse momentum. The particles transverse momentum distribution in an interferometer is time independent and is determined by the aperture wave function. Consequently, it is independent of the distance from the slits. As such, it is a very important characteristic of the quantum state. Experimental determination of the mo­ mentum distribution would support the particle and wave interpretation of quantum interference in a new manner.
