Rydberg Atoms in Magnetic and Electric Fields

  • Serge Feneuille

Abstract

During the last five years, numerous experimental and theoretical studies have been carried out on highly excited atoms in the presence of an uniform field, magnetic or electric. The aim of these four lectures was to describe our present knowledge of this subject which is of a great theoretical interest and which recently reaped a large profit from laser spectroscopy.
