Combining ultracold atoms with an optical cavity enables the study of a single quantized mode coupled to a tunable many-body quantum system. Such systems have applications ranging from sensing to superradiant lasing, as well as their use for studying fundamental physics such as measurement backaction. I will present a picture of stochastic classical trajectories to describe evolution of a continuously monitored system conditioned on it’s measurement record, and show how the resulting measurement backaction couples to the atom motion. In addition, I will show that stochastic techniques can be a valuable tool to study collective and cooperative scattering in optical cavities.
