Transition lifetime measurements and correlation experiments with ultra-cold metastable helium
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]
