Heavy Rydberg Physics Workshop at ITAMP
May 11-12, 2012
The topic of ion-pair states and collisions has seen
fascinating developments recently, including spectroscopic observations
of high-n heavy Rydberg molecules, continuing developments in
laboratory measurements of mutual neutralization and of ion-pair
dissociation, and the promise of trapping cold long-range molecules.
In each of these examples, the underlying physics is similar, but
the implications range from spectroscopy and chemical dynamics, to
astrophysics and cold atom physics.
This event will be a roundtable discussion on the challenges and opportunities in this emerging field which touches upon atomic and molecular physics, spectroscopy and astrophysics
