Ionization of Excited Atomic Particles by Electric Fields

Conference paper

Abstract

Electric field ionization of atoms is applied to investigation of surface phenomena (field-ion microscopy1,2), as well as to physical chemical analysis (field ionization mass-spectrometry3,4). Recently this phenomenon has been used in atomic physics itself, namely, to detect excited long-lived states of atoms and ions,6 to determine the population of these states5–7 and to measure the bound energy of electrons in these states.6,8–10 We can speak of this method of investigating atomic particles as field ionization spectroscopy (FIS).
