Mean-field energy-level shifts and dielectric properties of strongly polarized Rydberg gases

Article, Preprint English OPEN
Zhelyazkova, V.; Jirschik, R.; Hogan, S. D.;

Mean-field energy-level shifts arising as a result of strong electrostatic dipole interactions within dilute gases of polarized helium Rydberg atoms have been probed by microwave spectroscopy. The Rydberg states studied had principal quantum numbers $n=70$ and 72, and e... View more
