    • Collective effects in ultracold neutral plasmas 

      Castro Nieto, Jose Antonio (2012)
      This thesis describes the measurements of collective effects in strongly coupled ultra-cold neutral plasmas (UNPs). It shows the implementation of experimental techniques that perturb either the density or velocity ...
    • Creating Strontium Rydberg Atoms 

      Zhang, Xinyue (2013-05-28)
      Dipole-dipole interactions, the strongest, longest-range interactions possible between two neutral atoms, cannot be better manifested anywhere else than in a Rydberg atomic system. Rydberg atoms, having high principal ...
    • High Resolution Sculpting and Imaging of Ultracold Neutral Plasmas 

      McQuillen, Patrick (2012-09-05)
      The sculpting of ultracold neutral plasmas represents a frontier in the experimental study of collective modes in strongly coupled plasmas. By extending the range of accessible length scales to less than tens of microns ...
    • Ion dynamics in strongly coupled plasmas 

      Laha, Sampad (2007)
      A study of ion dynamics in strongly coupled ultracold neutral plasma (UCNP) is presented here. Plasma is created by photo-ionizing laser-cooled Sr atoms. Immediately after photo-ionization, the correlation between the ion ...
