Super-elastic scattering studies in a resonant optical enhancement cavity
Hussey, M, Jhumka, S, Knight-Percival, A, Murray, A & MacGillivray, W 2012, 'Super-elastic scattering studies in a resonant optical enhancement cavity', Journal of Physics: Conference Series, vol.388, no. 4, 042033.
A new method is described that allows super-elastic (SE) electron scattering studies to be extended to a wider range of targets. The technique employs an in-vacuum resonant optical enhancement cavity to amplify the intensity of the radiation interacting with the target atom. Initial SE results for Ca in a cavity are presented.
