Atomic, Molecular, and Optical Physics Seminar

Quantum State Design, Measurement, and Control

Professor John Yeazell
Department of Physics
Penn State

The talk will discuss theoretical and experimental techniques for designing and measuring Rydberg atomic quantum states with unique characteristics. A specific use of the design of Rydberg states is the coherent control of processes in the atom. A designed state is created experimentally that inhibits the autoionizaton process in a two-electron atom. The quantum measurement of single and two-electron atoms will also be presented.
