    We report on an experimental study of recoil-induced resonances as a method of velocimetry for cold atomic samples. We present a refined experimental method that greatly improves the sensitivity of the measurement over previous experiments. Using frequency-modulation (FM) spectroscopy techniques we achieve a sensitivity that approaches the shot noise limit. In addition, we present a novel approach to deriving the line shape of the observed signal, based on the concept of quantum transport and tunnelling in motional Bloch bands.
