Electric field sensing near the surface microstructure of an atom chip using cold Rydberg atoms
(University of Waterloo, 2013-05-27)
This thesis reports experimental observations of electric fields using Rydberg atoms, including dc field measurements near the surface of an atom chip, and demonstration of measurement techniques for ac fields far from ...
An apparatus for studying interactions between Rydberg atoms and metal surfaces
(University of Waterloo, 2007-09-27)
A system suitable for studying interactions between ⁸⁷Rb Rydberg atoms and metal surfaces has been constructed. This thesis describes the design and construction of the apparatus, and some test results. Atoms in a vapor ...
