Synchrotron light sources: The search for quantum chaos

  • Author(s): Schlachter, Fred
  • et al.
Abstract

A storage ring is a specialized synchrotron in which a stored beam of relativistic electrons produces radiation in the vuv and x-ray regions of the spectrum. High-brightness radiation is used at the ALS to study doubly excited autoionizing states of the helium atom in the search for quantum chaos.
