Wave-packet propagation study of the charge-transfer dynamics of Rydberg atoms with metal surfaces

Abstract:

A wave-packet propagation study is presented of the ionization dynamics of xenon and hydrogen Rydberg atoms interacting with a metal surface in the presence of an external field. The calculations are performed using a Coulomb-wave discrete variable representation, which allows an efficient extension of previous calculations to a higher principal quantum number. The wave-packet calculations include nonadiabatic effects at avoided energy level crossings. Ionization probabilities as a function o...
