Although schemes have been proposed, there has been no experimental realization of continuous measurement in atom optics. A study is presented of the effect of phase noise on laser-cooled atoms undergoing dynamic localization. Depending on the type of noise the master equation also describes a continuous measurement of momentum or position. Hence it is possible to test the effect of measurement in quantum chaos by tailoring the noise source.
