Advanced Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics (Theory part) (Experimental part) Andrey Surzhykov José R. Crespo López-Urrutia, Ullrich Joachim, Thomas Stöhlker Monday 14:00-16:00 KIP HS 1 Wednesday 14:00-16:00 KIP HS 1 Tutorial (Theory or Experiment) Tuesday 14:00-16:00 Thursday 14:00-16:00 10 October 2011 Advanced Atomic Molecular and Optical Physics The course provides insight in fundamental concepts and techniques of modern atomic, molecular and optical physics, emphasizing active research areas and applications such as: (1) Ultraprecise measurements of time, frequency, energy, and mass, and applications to fundamental physics studies. Trapping and cooling of atoms, ions and molecules. (2) Fundamental quantum dynamics occurring in energetic and soft collisions of ions with photons, electrons and atoms. Interactions of ion beams with biological targets. (3) Spectroscopy of relativistic, quantum electrodynamic and parity violation effects in few-electron heavy ions. Laboratory astrophysics with ions at very high temperatures. (4) Interactions of intense, short pulse lasers and free-electron lasers with manyelectron targets. Molecular structure and dynamics explored in pump-probe experiments on femtosecond to attosecond time scales. Theory, practical implementation of calculational methods, and experiment will be discussed and compared in case studies. Advanced Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics Andrey Surzhykov José R. Crespo López-Urrutia Joachim Ullrich Thomas Stöhlker Physikalisches Institut, Heidelberg Max-Planck-Institut für Kernphysik, Heidelberg Gesellschaft für Schwerionenforschung, Darmstadt Why atomic physics / quantum science? • Atoms are the best examples of quantum systems we have. • They can be prepared in very well defined states. • Their temporal evolution can be measured and manipulated. • Atomic physics experiments can be reproduced all over the world. • They deliver the most accurate results in any experimental science. • All interactions (electromagnetic, weak, strong, and gravitation) can be explored by means of atomic physics experiments. • Small is beautiful! Atomic physics and fundamental research A) Test of fundamental theories (QED, Gravitation ect.) by means of (ultra-)high precision experiments B) Exploring the quantum dynamics of few-particle systems Coulomb interaction precisely known, but: only the two-particle Coulomb system is analytically solvable Experiments provide tests for theoretical approximations and models or new numerical (computational) methods Time-resolved studies build the basis for the manipulation of quantum dynamics Example: Highest accuracy •Atomic clocks run „wrong“ by 5 minutes in 13 billion years. •Time (and thus frequencies) can be measured with the highest accuracy among all physical quantities. •Example: the 1S-2S transition in atomic hydrogen: 2.466.061.413.187.103 ± 46 Hz → check for temporal drifts of the fine structure constant α Die genaueste Uhr der Welt vom LPTF/Paris in Garchinger Labor des MPQ Examples: Highest accuracy → contradictory results for proton radius 0.895(18) fm Atomic spectroscopic measurements have pushed this field (nuclear physics, QCD) again! New tools: The frequency comb In the frequency domain a train of short pulses from a femtosecond laser is the result of a interference of many continuous wave (cw) longitudinal cavity modes. These modes at ωn form a series of frequency spikes that is called frequency comb. The individual modes can be selected by phase locking other cw lasers to them. The separation between adjacent modes is constant across the frequency comb: ωn = nωr+ ωCE: The mode number n of some 105 can be counted; frequency offset ωCE lies in between 0 and ωr = 1/T. The mode spacing is thereby identified with pulse repetition rate ωr, i.e. the inverse pulse repetition time T. With the help of that equation, two radio frequencies ωr and ωCE are linked to the optical frequencies ωn of the laser.
