Abstract: We extend the study of Kapitza-Dirac diffraction to the case of two-particlesystems. Due to the exchange effects the shape and visibility of thetwo-particle detection patterns show important differences for identical anddistinguishable particles. We also identify a novel quantum statistics effectpresent in momentum space for some values of the initial particle momenta,which is associated with different numbers of photon absorptions compatiblewith the final momenta.
