• #### Ionization of Rydberg atoms by half-cycle pulses: Effect of pulse shape and rise time ﻿

(1998)
The ionization of potassium np Rydberg atoms with $n\sim388$ by pulsed unidirectional electric fields, termed half-cycle pulses (HCPs), with various well-characterized shapes (rectangular, triangular, and sawtooth) and ...
• #### The kicked Rydberg atom: Non-linear dynamics and manipulation of atomic wavefunctions ﻿

(2002)
The response of rubidium Rydberg atoms with principal quantum number n = 390 to one or more half-cycle electric field pulses (HCPs) with durations Tp much less than the classical electron orbital period Tn is investigated. ...
