Abstract 
We investigate the role of interatomic interactions when a Bose gas, in a doublewell potential with a finite tunneling probability (a 'Bose–Josephson junction'), is exposed to external noise. We examine the rate of decoherence of a system initially in its ground state with equal probability amplitudes in both sites. The noise may induce two kinds of effects: firstly, random shifts in the relative phase or number difference between the two wells and secondly, loss of atoms from the trap. The effects of induced phase fluctuations are mitigated by atom–atom interactions and tunneling, such that the dephasing rate may be suppressed by half its singleatom value. Random fluctuations may also be induced in the population difference between the wells, in which case atom–atom interactions considerably enhance the decoherence rate. A similar scenario is predicted for the case of atom loss, even if the loss rates from the two sites are equal. We find that if the initial state is numbersqueezed due to interactions, then the loss process induces population fluctuations that reduce the coherence across the junction. We examine the parameters relevant for these effects in a typical atom chip device, using a simple model of the trapping potential, experimental data, and the theory of magnetic field fluctuations near metallic conductors. These results provide a framework for mapping the dynamical range of barriers engineered for specific applications and set the stage for more complex atom circuits ('atomtronics').

this paper is about the coherence of anatomic Josephson junction in the presence of external noise the dynamics of a BoseEinstein condensate of many atoms in the doublewell potential is equivalent to a Josephson junction of 2 superconductors with the tunneling barrier between them the

system can be thought of as an ensemble of many twolevel systems represented by the loss fear a state where most of the atoms are in the right will is represented by a distribution in the south pole while state where most of the atoms are in the left will use is represented by a distribution near the north pole the ground state is usually a state where the population of the 2 wells is equal and represented by a distribution near the equator if the items are not interact and then the ground state is a coherent state where each outcomes is in a superposition of the 2 wells equally however in the presence of repulsive interactions in the ground state is partially localized state where some of the atoms are mainly Manuel and some of the up atoms are mainly in the other this means that a phase difference applied between the whales will cause less transfer of population between the whales then in the case of a noninteracting system the bluffs cheerleader wafer can be reduced into a flat phase number space in the face
