Electron-ion recombination in strongly coupled, cold plasmas under nonequilibrium conditions

Abstract

We discuss the dynamics of recombination of an expanding ultracold plasma into highly excited Rydberg states, with emphasis on the influence of possible strong coupling between the charges and the nonequilibrium character of the electronic component. While the former does not significantly affect recombination in current experimental scenarios, the latter… (More)
