Effect of a Finite-time Resolution on Schrődinger Cat States in Complex Collisions
We study the effect of finite-time resolution on coherent superpositions of clockwise and anticlockwise rotating wave packets in the regime of strongly overlapping resonances of the intermediate complex. Such highly excited deformed complexes may be created in binary collisions of heavy-ions, molecules and atomic clusters. It is shown that time averaging reduces the interference fringes acting effectively as dephasing. We propose a simple estimate of the "critical" time averaging interval. For...[Show more]
