Existence and stability of cold Rydberg gases and Plasmas

Research output: Contribution to journal/Conference contribution in journal/Contribution to newspaperJournal articleResearchpeer-review

Recently, the spontaneous evolution of an ultracold gas of Rydberg atoms into a plasma has been demonstrated experimentally, as well as the reverse process of plasma recombination into atomic Rydberg states. Here, we discuss the existence and stability properties of the gas and plasma phases over a wide range of initial-state parameters.
