In this contribution, the manipulation of BECs using Raman double-diffraction processes and their application to form (asymmetric) Mach-Zehnder-type interferometers, e.g. for inertial sensing, are presented for a compact, robust, and autonomously operating setup that generates Rb-87 and K-41 BECs with a high repetition rate.
