Laser-induced electronic bridge for characterization of the 229mTh → 229gTh nuclear transition with a tunable optical laser with a tunable optical laser
An alternative method to determine the excitation energy of the $~^{229\rm{m}}\rm{Th}$ isomer via the laser-induced electronic bridge is investigated theoretically. In the presence of an optical orExpand
Electric quadrupole channel of the 7.8 eV 229 Th transition
The unique isomeric transition at 7.8 eV in $~^{229}\mathrm{Th}$ has a magnetic dipole ($M1$) and an electric quadrupole ($E2$) multipole mixing. So far, the $E2$ component has been widelyExpand
Electric-dipole-forbidden nuclear transitions driven by super-intense laser fields
Electric-dipole-forbidden transitions of nuclei interacting with super-intense laser fields are investigated by considering stable isotopes with suitable low-lying first excited states. DifferentExpand
Theory of nuclear excitation by electron capture for heavy ions (13 pages)
We investigate the resonant process of nuclear excitation by electron capture (NEEC), in which a continuum electron is captured into a bound state of an ion with the simultaneous excitation of theExpand
Internal conversion from excited electronic states of 229Th ions
The process of internal conversion from excited electronic states is investigated theoretically for the case of the vacuum-ultraviolet nuclear transition of $^{229}{\mathrm Th}$. Due to the very lowExpand
Coherent control of the cooperative branching ratio for nuclear x-ray pumping
Coherent control of nuclear pumping in a three-level system driven by x-ray light is investigated. In single nuclei the pumping performance is determined by the branching ratio of the excited stateExpand
Roadmap on STIRAP applications
STIRAP (Stimulated Raman Adiabatic Passage) is a powerful laser-based method, usually involving two photons, for efficient and selective transfer of population between quantum states. A particularlyExpand
Nuclear Coherent Population Transfer with X-Ray Laser Pulses
This chapter aims to address the problem of actively manipulating the nuclear state by using coherent hard x-ray photons.
Dominant Secondary Nuclear Photoexcitation with the X-ray Free Electron Laser
The new regime of resonant nuclear photoexcitation rendered possible by x-ray free-electron laser beams interacting with solid state targets is investigated theoretically. Our results unexpectedlyExpand
Coherent Storage and Phase Modulation of Single Hard-X-Ray Photons Using Nuclear Excitons
The coherent storage and phase modulation of x-ray single-photon wave packets in the resonant scattering of light off nuclei is theoretically investigated. We show that by switching off and on againExpand
