    Abstract

    Experimental results on phase-space imaging of a laser-cooled atomic cloud are presented. Both position and velocity information are encoded in the frequency of the signal coherently radiated from the cloud. This encoding is achieved by application of a position-dependent magnetic field. Fourier transformation of the signal yields a projection of the phase-space density of the atoms. Imprinting a structure on the cloud we observe its time `sheering' evolution in the phase-space. Since the projection direction is determined by the imposed field gradient, we can reconstruct the phase-space structure of the cloud.
