Dynamics of Atomic Collisions on Helium Clusters

  • Jürgen Gspann
  • Roland Ries


Differential scattering of Cs atoms from 4He clusters indicates strong interaction at all relative velocities between 140 and 350 m/s. Quantum fluid properties seem to be masked by the particular dynamics at the surface of the 4He clusters.
