Three-photon excitation of hydrogen Rydberg states

Wallace L. Glab, Munir H. Nayfeh

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A three-photon process using radiation at 2430 and 3660 A® and with a ls-2s two-photon resonance is used to excite atomic hydrogen from the ground state to Rydberg states of high principal quantum number. Collision-induced ionization is used to monitor the excitation.
