Using fabricated transmission gratings as optical elements for the matter waves, we are constructing an atom interferometer which will physically separate atom waves before recombining them. Atom interferometers will be useful in studies of atomic properties, tests of basic quantum physics, for metrology, as a rotation sensor, and perhaps ultimately as devices to make ultra-small structures using atom holograms.
