Kinetic Energy Oscillations in Annular Regions of an Ultracold Neutral Plasma
Killian, Thomas C.
Master of Science
A study of ion oscillations in the annular regions of a strontium plasma is reported. An ultracold neutral plasma is formed by photoionizing the 1 P 1 electrons using a pulsed dye laser' and absorption spectroscopy is done on the 2 S ½ - 2 P ½ transition
