A theoretical study of photoexcitation of highly charged ions from their ground states, a process which can be realized at the Gamma Factory at CERN, is presented. Special attention is paid to the question of how the excitation rates are affected by the mixing of opposite‐parity ionic levels, which is induced both by an external electric field and the weak interaction between electrons and the nucleus. In order to reinvestigate this “Stark‐plus‐weak‐interaction” mixing, well‐known in neutral… 



Isotopic variation of parity violation in atomic ytterbium

The weak force is the only fundamental interaction known to violate the symmetry with respect to spatial inversion (parity). This parity violation can be used to isolate the effects of the weak

Measurement of Parity Nonconservation and an Anapole Moment in Cesium

The amplitude of the parity-nonconserving transition between the 6S and 7S states of cesium was precisely measured with the use of a spin-polarized atomic beam, providing an improved test of the standard model at low energy, including a value for the S parameter of −1.3(3)exp (11)theory.

Atomic Physics Studies at the Gamma Factory at CERN

The Gamma Factory initiative proposes to develop novel research tools at CERN by producing, accelerating, and storing highly relativistic, partially stripped ion beams in the SPS and LHC storage

Photon-photon angular correlations in the radiative recombination of bare high-Z ions

The radiative recombination of a free electron into excited states of bare, high-Z ions and the subsequent photon decay are studied in the framework of the density matrix theory. Emphasis is placed,
