Nonhydrogenic effects in the deceleration of Rydberg atoms in inhomogeneous electric fields.

Abstract:
Argon atoms in Stark states at n approximately 25 have been decelerated and accelerated in inhomogeneous electric fields. The acceleration and deceleration behavior can be understood only by considering the adiabatic Landau-Zener dynamics that take place at the avoided crossings between the Stark states and the limited fluorescence lifetimes of approximately 10 micros.
