Abstract: We investigate a momentum-resolved Raman spectroscopy technique which is able to probe the one-body spectral function and the quasiparticle states of a gas of strongly interacting ultracold atoms. This technique is inspired by angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy, a powerful experimental probe of electronic states in solid-state systems. Quantitative examples of experimentally accessible spectra are given for the most significant regimes along the BEC-BCS crossover. When the theory is specialized to rf spectroscopy, agreement is found with recent experimental data. The main advantages of this Raman spectroscopy over existing techniques are pointed out.
