**ABSTRACT:**Off-resonant optical imaging is a popular method for continuous monitoring of a Bose–Einstein condensate. However, the disturbance caused by scattered photons places a serious limitation on the lifetime of such continuously monitored condensates. In this paper, we demonstrate that a new choice of feedback control can overcome the heating effects of the measurement backaction. In particular, we show that the measurement backaction caused by off-resonant optical imaging is a multi-mode quantum-field effect, as the entire heating process is not seen in single-particle or mean-field models of the system. Simulating such continuously monitored systems is possible with the number- phase Wigner particle filter, which currently gives both the highest precision and largest timescale simulations amongst competing methods. It is a hybrid between the leading techniques for simulating non-equilibrium dynamics in condensates and particle filters for simulating high-dimensional non-Gaussian filters in the field of engineering. The new control scheme will enable long- term continuous measurement and feedback on one of the leading platforms for precision measurement and the simulation of quantum fields, allowing for the possibility of single-shot experiments, adaptive measurements and robust state- preparation and manipulation.New Journal of Physics 11/2013; 15(11):113060. · 3.67 Impact Factor
