Abstract. It is possible to cool metastable (2 3 S 1) Helium by interaction with a laser at μm, since the transition 2 3 S 1 – 2 3 P 2 is a closed transition. Helium is a very attractive system for many reasons: for example it is a simple atom, and progress in its spectroscopic measurements may lead to improved accuracy in fundamental constants (α).   The formation of metastable helium in large amounts on exoplanets was theorized a long time ago but up until now, it had never actually been detected. This .

Fast Beam Experiment This charge exhange method is used in the fast beam experiment. A RF ion source produces a keV He + beam. The ion beam is passed through a cesium vapor target to produce the metastable helium atoms. The remaining ions are deflected out of the way with a set of deflection plates in the next chamber, leaving only the. An illustration of an open book. Books.

Owing to large ground state He abundance in the winter and to photoelectrons from an illuminated conjugate thermosphere, the strongest nm intensities (arising from He.

quence, the most rapid decay process from the metastable to the ground state is via a magnetic-dipole-allowed, single-photon transition at nm in the XUV region.

Total cross sections in the energy range keV for destruction of metastable helium atoms (i.e., electron loss and deexcitation) penetrating H 2, He, N 2, Ne, or Ar gas targets have been measured by the beam-attenuation fast, metastable helium atoms were formed by electron detachment from He-ions in either a strong electric field or under single-collision.

Exited atoms may relax to the ground state by radiative decay, a process which is usually very fast (of order nanoseconds). However, quantum-mechanical selection rules can prevent such rapid decay, in which case these "metastable" states can have lifetimes of order seconds or longer. In this Letter, we determine experimentally the lifetime of the longest-lived neutral atomic state-the first.

The role of fast metastable helium atoms in the formation of He-ions by charge-changing collisions during the passage of kev helium beams through hydrogen has been investigated quantitatively.

It is shown that He-ions are formed by collisions involving one-electron capture by fast metastable helium atoms while all other possible production mechanisms are found. The laser beam passed through the second cell, 9-cm long and 5 cm in diameter.

The helium pressure was equal to p He = 6 15 Torr. Molecular gas pressures were changed in a range of 5 mTorr when the rate quenching constants of MS He (2 1 S 0) was helium pressure was chosen such that the collisional broadening of the line on the transition (2 1 P 1 0 − 2 1.

Abstract In this note we report on simple estimates of the properties of metastable solid helium that is at a pressure below the normal melting pressure.

We calculate the nucleation rate for formation of the liquid phase and estimate the “spinodal” pressure at which the solid becomes macroscopically unstable. The role of fast metastable helium atoms in the formation of He- ions by charge-changing collisions during the passage of kev helium beams through hydrogen has been investigated quantitatively.

Ratios R of the cross sections for associative to the sum of associative and Penning ionization have been measured using molecular beams of thermal energy (°K) metastable atoms, A *, incident on a gas B confined in a collision chamber at low pressures, where A * is either 2 1,3 S helium or 3 P 2,0 neon and B is argon or krypton.

By determining R as a function of the collision chamber. 0 Reviews. A consistent, up-to-date description of the extremely manifold and varied experimental techniques which nowadays enable work with neutral particles.

Th book lays the physical foundations. This dissertation describes experiments to develop and realize an atomic decelerator (or "slower") for metastable helium using the optical bichromatic force (BCF).

The research comprises two subtopics—using the bichromatic force at very large detunings, and developing a chirped BCF slower.

There is experimental evidence that as bichromatic detunings approach times the natural. We studied the dynamics of thermoluminescence during destruction of porous structures formed by nanoclusters of nitrogen molecules containing high concentrations of stabilized nitrogen atoms.

The porous structures were formed in bulk superfluid helium by injection of the products of discharges in nitrogen–helium gas mixtures through the liquid helium surface. A calculation of the cross section for the reaction He′+He′=He+He + +e (destruction of the metastable 2 3 S state by ionization) has been performed by means of the perturbed stationary state method.

The cross section obtained is of the order of magnitude 10 —18 cm 2 at room temperature and increases slowly with decreasing kinetic energy of the colliding particles. Understanding the migration of either positive or negative charges in liquid helium is essential to comprehend charge-induced processes in molecular systems embedded in helium droplets.

Here, we report the resonant formation of excited metastable atomic and molecular helium anions in superfluid helium droplets upon electron impact.

This source, based on electron bombardment of a helium beam, produces a helium metastable flux of 4 x atoms s-1 sr-l, with a stability of 2%, and an effective ultraviolet photon content of less than 1 %.

ection of metastable helium atoms using resonant nm laser light is described. By scattering photons, the metastable helium atoms gain the momentum of the absorbed photons in the direction of illumination. This results in a de ection of the atom beam.

The main goal of this research is to determine the relation between the de ection of the atom.texts All Books All Texts latest This Just In Smithsonian Libraries FEDLINK (US) Genealogy Lincoln Collection.
