Effects of motional states of a trapped atom on its interaction with nonresonant light

Abstract

We consider modification of an atom-field nonresonant interaction due to the motion of the atom ~ion! in a confining potential of the trap. We study the electromagnetic field emitted by the trapped atom for various states of its center of mass. In particular, we study the radiation emitted by the atom when its center of mass is in a superposition of two… (More)
