Abstract : We investigate, theoretically and experimentally, ways to generate quantum mechanically correlated states between ensembles of atomic particles. The theoretical goals are: determine the best correlated states for particular applications and devise ways to generate these states and ways to measure them. The experimental goals are: demonstrate the increase in signal-to-noise ratio in spectroscopy using correlated particles, and apply stimulated Raman transitions for generation of the correlated states on transitions of general interest including microwave and optical transitions.
