Abstract

A full description of four-wave mixing (4WM) using a mean-field treatment of Bose-Einstein condensates was developed. It was found that elastic scattering loss between atoms in the fast wave packets removes enough atoms from the wave packets to affect the 4WM output. Quantum mechanical 3D calculations showed good agreement with experiment.
