Interference experiments with independent condensates provide a powerful tool for analyzing correlation functions. Scaling of the average fringe contrast with the system size is determined by the two‐point correlation function and can be used to study the Luttinger liquid liquid behavior in one‐dimensional systems and to observe the Kosterlitz‐Thouless transition in two‐dimensional quasicondensates. Additionally, higher moments of the fringe contrast can be used to determine the higher order correlation functions. In this article we focus on interference experiments with one‐dimensional Bose liquids and show that methods of conformal field theory can be applied to calculate the full quantum distribution function of the fringe contrast.
