The precision is in the order of 1/3000 of the electron wavelength, which is 15 times higher than the best precision (the order of 1/200 of the electron wavelength) obtained in RIKEN using a conventional magnetic observation technique.
When the well width is approximately equal to an integer or half-integer multiple of the electron wavelength, a resonance condition occurs.
In their theoretical analysis, Gaylord and Brennan consider a filter consisting of nine layers, each layer a quarter or a half of the electron wavelength in thickness.
