We present magic wavelengths for the $nS$ - $nP_{1/2,3/2}$ and $nS$ - $mD_{3/2,5/2}$ transitions, with the respective ground and first excited $D$ states principal quantum numbers $n$ and $m$, in the Mg$^+$, Ca$^+$, Sr$^+$ and Ba$^+$ alkaline earth ions for linearly polarized lights by plotting dynamic polarizatbilities of the $nS$, $nP_{1/2,3/2}$ and $mD_{3/2,5/2}$ states of the ions. These dynamic polarizabilities are evaluated by employing a relativistic all-order perturbative method and…

Tune-out and magic wavelengths of Ba+ ions

The static and dynamic polarizabilities of the ground state and low-lying excited states of ${\mathrm{Ba}}^{+}$ ions are calculated by using a relativistic semiempirical method: the relativistic

Angle-dependent magic wavelengths for the 4s1/2→3d5/2,3/2 transitions of Ca+ ions

The dynamic polarizabilities of the atomic states with angular momentum $j> \frac12$ are sensitive to the angle between the quantization axis $\hat{e}_z$ and the polarization vector

Many-body calculations and hyperfine-interaction effect on dynamic polarizabilities at the low-lying energy levels of Y2+

The present paper determines the precise values of magic wavelengths corresponding to the clock transitions ${5}^{2}S\text{--}{4}^{2}D$ of the ${\mathrm{Y}}^{2+}$ ion at the levels of both fine and

Magnetic Sublevel Independent Magic and Tune-Out Wavelengths of the Alkaline-Earth Ions

Light shift in a state due to the applied laser in an atomic system vanishes at tune-out wavelengths (λTs). Similarly, differential light shift in a transition vanishes at the magic wavelengths

Tunable magic wavelengths for trapping with focused Laguerre-Gaussian beams

We present in this paper a theory of dynamic polarizability for an atomic state due to an external field of non-paraxial Laguerre-Gaussian (LG) beam using the sum-over-states technique. A highly

Relativistic semiempirical-core-potential calculations in Ca+, Sr+, and Ba+ ions on Lagrange meshes

Relativistic atomic structure calculations are carried out in alkaline-earth-metal ions using a semiempirical-core-potential approach. The systems are partitioned into frozen-core electrons and an

Comparing magic wavelengths for the 6 s 2 S 1 / 2 − 6 p 2 P 1 / 2,3 / 2 transitions of Cs using circularly and linearly polarized light

We demonstrate magic wavelengths, at which an external electric field produces null differential Stark shifts, for the 6 s 2 S 1 / 2 − 6 p 2 P 1 / 2,3 / 2 transitions in a Cs atom due to circularly

Trapping ions and atoms optically

Isolating neutral and charged particles from the environment is essential in precision experiments. For decades, this has been achieved by trapping ions with radio-frequency (RF) fields and neutral

Accurate determination of black-body radiation shift, magic and tune-out wavelengths for the 6S1/2 ⃗ 5D3/2 clock transition in Yb+

We present precise values of the dipole polarizabilities (α) of the ground [ 4 f 14 6 s ] 2 S 1 / 2 and metastable [ 4 f 14 5 d ] 2 D 3 / 2 states of Yb+, that are important in reducing systematics
