We show that a sub shot-noise sensitivity – associated with the quantum correlations present in the state entering the interferometer – can be achieved with particle-position measurements using a new phase estimator which does not require any knowledge about these correlations, and is based on the single-body density. For the case of the estimation of the relative phase θ between two interfering wave-packets we demonstrate that the sensitivity can scale as Δ2θ∝ N−1.33 with the total number of particles N when phase-squeezed states are used. The necessary amount of squeezing could be created using a Bose-Einstein Condensate trapped in a double-well potential, and we argue that even with finite detection efficiency/resolution, sub shot-noise sensitivity can be preserved.
