Abstract:

The objective of this research program was to reach an understanding of excited atom processes by a systematic experimental study of their spectroscopy, interactions with strong fields, and collisions. The method used is laser excitation of excited atoms in conjunction with a variety of state selective detection techniques developed in our laboratory. Although it is unusual to study spectroscopy and collisions in the same research program, it has proved to be a very enlightening approach. The following section of this report summarizes the accomplishments. For reference, a list of the scientific papers published under this contract is included. These papers embody the main conclusions of our study.
