Abstract

Patterns are ubiquitous in nature and have been extensively studied in biology, chemistry and physics including optics. We report here on experiments where pattern formation occurs in a cloud of laser cooled atoms. We identify three different mechanisms allowing spatial patterns to spontaneously emerge in either the atomic density, the excited state population, or the atomic spin state.
