Abstract: We discuss a quantum-metrology protocol designed to estimate a physicalparameter in a Bose-Einstein condensate of N atoms, and we show that themeasurement uncertainty can decrease faster than 1-N. The 1-N scaling isusually thought to be the best possible in any measurement scheme. From theperspective of quantum information theory, we outline the main idea that leadsto a measurement uncertainty that scales better than 1-N. We examine in detailsome potential problems and challenges that arise in implementing such ameasurement protocol using a Bose-Einstein condensate. We discuss how some ofthese issues can be dealt with by using lower-dimensional condensates trappedin nonharmonic potentials.
