1. 4-bar-quasi-phasematching for second-harmonic generation in microdisks
Topic: Atomic Physics
Published: 8/15/2011
Authors: Paulina S Kuo, Glenn Scott Solomon
Abstract: We present a theoretical description of resonantly enhanced, 4-bar-quasi-phasematched, second-harmonic generation in microdisks made of materials possessing 4-bar symmetry, such as GaAs, GaP and ZnSe. The theory describes the interplay between quasi- ...

2. Analysis of Collisional Alignment & Orientation Studied by Scattering of Spin-polarized Electrons from Laser Excited Atoms
Topic: Atomic Physics
Published: 1/1/1987
Authors: I Hertel, Michael H Kelley, Jabez J McClelland
Abstract: A general framework using density matrices is developed for the analysis of atomic excitation by spin-polarized electrons. This framework is applied to the specific case of the 3S^d1/2^{rarr} 3P^d3/2^ transition in Na, as studied by the time-reverse ...

3. Analysis of Collisional Orientation and Alignment Studies using Spin-polarized Electrons and Laser Excited Atoms
Topic: Atomic Physics
Published: 1/1/1987
Authors: I Hertel, Michael H Kelley, Jabez J McClelland

4. Bound-state field theory approach to proton structure effects in muonic hydrogen
Topic: Atomic Physics
Published: 5/17/2013
Authors: Peter J Mohr, J Griffith, J. Sapirstein
Abstract: A bound-state field theory approach to muonic hydrogen is set up using a variant of the Furry representation in which the lowest-order Hamiltonian describes a muon in the presence of a point Coulomb field, but the origin of the binding field is taken ...

5. CODATA Recommended Values of the Fundamental Physical Constants: 2010
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 961
Topic: Atomic Physics
Published: 3/1/2012
Authors: Peter J Mohr, Barry Norman Taylor, David B Newell
Abstract: NIST SP 961 (Dec/2012)

6. Charge state dependent energy deposition by ion impacts
Topic: Atomic Physics
Published: 8/5/2011
Authors: Russell Lake, Joshua M Pomeroy, Holger Grube, C E Sosolik
Abstract: We report on a measurement of craters in thin dielectric films formed by XeQ+ (26  Q  44) projectiles. Tunnel junction devices with ion-irradiated barriers were used to amplify the effect of charge-dependent cratering through the exponential depend ...

7. Cold light from hot atoms
Topic: Atomic Physics
Published: 1/1/2011
Authors: John J Curry, G G Lister
Abstract: The introduction of rare earth atoms and molecules into lighting discharges led to great advances in efficacy of these lamps. Atoms such as Dy, Ho and Ce provide excellent radiation sources for lighting applications1, with strong radiation bands in ...

8. Collisional cooling of ultra-cold atom ensembles using Feshbach resonances
Topic: Atomic Physics
Published: 9/8/2009
Authors: Ludwig G. Mathey, Eite Tiesinga, Paul S Julienne, Charles W Clark
Abstract: We propose a new type of cooling mechanism for ultra-cold fermionic atom ensembles, which capitalizes on the energy dependence of inelastic collisions in the presence of a Feshbach resonance. We first discuss the case of a single magnetic reson ...

9. Creation and manipulation of Feshbach resonances with radio-frequency radiation
Topic: Atomic Physics
Published: 8/12/2010
Authors: Thomas Mark Hanna, Eite Tiesinga, Paul S Julienne
Abstract: We present a simple technique for studying collisions of ultracold atoms in the presence of a magnetic field and radio-frequency radiation (rf ). Resonant control of scattering properties can be achieved by using rf to couple a colliding pair o ...

10. Critical capture distances for highly charged ions above dielectric covered metal surfaces
Topic: Atomic Physics
Published: 6/1/2011
Authors: Russell Lake, Joshua M Pomeroy, C E Sosolik
Abstract: We model the first stage of the electronic interaction between an ion and a metal surface covered with a thin dielectric layer. Specifically, we seek to answer two questions. (i) As an ion approaches the surface from far away, does the first electron ...
