Laser-assisted atom-atom collisions

  • F. Roussel
Invited Lectures Part I: Collisions in Laser Fields
Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 229)

Abstract

The basic laser-assisted atom-atom collision processes are reviewed in order to get a simpler picture of the main physical facts. The processes can be interpreted in terms of photoexcitation of the quasimolecule formed during the collisional process. Last results of our laboratory in this. field are also presented.

Keywords

Rydberg State Associative Ionization Multiphoton Ionization Pair Excitation Collisional Energy Transfer 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
