The quantum theory of the cold-atom micromaser including the effects of gravity is considered. We show that gravity does not break the special properties of the induced emission probability for the micromaser in the cold atom regime and rather new effects are predicted. In particular, we show that the cavity acts in the gravity field as an additional repulsive and attractive potential, resulting in quasibound states of the atomic motion. This feature gives rise to fine resonances in the induced emission probability that are not restricted to any particular cavity mode function, in contrast to the usual cold-atom micromaser. It is also shown that the atom is able to emit a photon inside the cavity, though classically it does not reach the interaction region. Predictions about the photon number statistics when the cavity is pumped by a flux of excited atoms are finally given. Unusual highly nonclassical "dragon" distributions are still predicted in the vertical geometry. (c) 2005 American Institute of Physics. [less ▲]

The transmission probability of ultracold atoms through a micromaser is studied in the general case where a detuning between the cavity mode and the atomic transition frequencies is present. We generalize previous results established in the resonant case (zero detuning) for the mesa mode function. In particular, it is shown that the velocity selection of cold atoms passing through the micromaser can be very easily tuned and enhanced using a non-resonant field inside the cavity. Also, the transmission probability exhibits with respect to the detuning very sharp resonances that could define single cavity devices for high accuracy metrology purposes (atomic clocks). [less ▲]

We present observations of VUV transitions between doubly excited sextet states in O, IV, F V and Ne VI. Spectra were produced by collisions of an O+, (FH)(+) and Ne+ beam with a thin carbon foil target. Some observed lines are assigned to the 1s2s2p(2)3p L-6-1 s2p(3)3p P-6 electric-dipole transitions in 0 IV, F V and Ne VI, and are compared with the results of multi-configuration Hartree-Fock (with QED and higher-order corrections) and multi-configuration Dirac-Fock calculations. 31 new lines have been identified. The sextet systems of boronlike ions are possible candidates for x-ray and VUV lasers. [less ▲]

The quantum theory of the mazer in the nonresonant case (a detuning between the cavity mode and the atomic transition frequencies is present) is described. The generalization from the resonant case is far from being direct. Interesting effects of the mazer physics are pointed out. In particular, it is shown that the cavity may slow down or speed up the atoms according to the sign of the detuning and that the induced emission process may be completely blocked by use of a positive detuning. It is also shown that the detuning adds a potential step effect not present at resonance and that the use of positive detunings defines a well-controlled cooling mechanism. In the special case of a mesa cavity mode function, generalized expressions for the reflection and transmission coefficients have been obtained. The general properties of the induced emission probability are finally discussed in the hot, intermediate, and cold atom regimes. Comparison with the resonant case is given. [less ▲]

A short review of the theoretical studies of the cold atom micromaser (mazer) is presented. Existing models are then improved by considering more general working conditions. Especially, the mazer physics is investigated in the situation where a detuning between the cavity mode and the atomic transition frequency is present. Interesting new effects are pointed out. Especially, it is shown that the cavity may slow down or speed up the atoms according to the sign of the detuning and that the induced emission process may be completely blocked by use of a positive detuning. The transmission probability of ultracold atoms through a micromaser is also studied and we generalize previous results established in the resonant case. In particular, it is shown that the velocity selection of cold atoms passing through the micromaser can be very easily tuned and enhanced using a nonresonant field inside the cavity. [less ▲]

In a recent work, Abdel-Aty and Obada (2002 J. Phys. B: At. Mol. Opt. Phys. 35 807-13) analysed the quantum inversion of cold atoms in a microcavity, the motion of the atoms being described quantum mechanically. Two-level atoms were assumed to interact with a single mode of the cavity, and the off-resonance case was considered (namely the atomic transition frequency is detuned from the single-mode cavity frequency). We demonstrate in this paper that this case is incorrectly treated by these authors, and we therefore question their conclusions. [less ▲]

The energies and lifetimes of doubly excited sextet states of boron-like O IV, F V, and Ne VI are calculated with the multiconfiguration Hartree-Fock approach, including QED and higher-order corrections, and also with the multiconfiguration Dirac-Fock GRASP code. The wavelengths and transition rates of electric-dipole transitions from the inner-shell excited terms 1s2s2p23s 6P–1s2p33s 6So are investigated by beam-foil spectroscopy in the XUV spectral region. The predicted transition wavelengths agree with the experiment. The higherorder corrections, fine structures, and spectrum with high wavelength resolution are found to be critically important in these comparisons. Nine new lines have been identified. The ground sextet states of boronlike atoms are metastable and well above several ionization levels. These are possible candidates for XUV and soft x-ray lasers. [less ▲]

We study the population trapping phenomenon for the one-photon mazer. With this intent, the mazer theory is written using the dressed-state coordinate formalism, simplifying the expressions for the atomic populations, the cavity photon statistics, and the reflection and transmission probabilities. Under the population trapping condition, evidence for new properties of the atomic scattering is given. Experimental issues and possible applications are discussed. (C) 2003 Elsevier Science B.V.
