Frozen Rydberg Gas:

  • Published 2002


A frozen Rydberg gas is a sample of atoms with highly excited electronic states and very low temperature. In our experiments, Rb atoms are cooled and trapped in a magneto-optical trap (MOT) (fig.1&2), and excited to the Rydberg states (the principle quantum number n ~30) by pulsed dye lasers (fig.3). In such a system, the density of Rydberg atoms Nd is… (More)
