Trapped gases of ultracold metastable helium atoms are a unique experimental sys-
tem. The trapped cloud’s low temperatures, the ability to selectively trap and ma-
nipulate individual atomic states and the isolation provided in a vacuum chamber
are all conducive to the measurement of precision atomic parameters, such as atomic
transition rates. Due to it’s atomic structure helium - the simplest multi-electron
atom - is a favourite test-bed for precision QED theoretical calculations...[Show more]
