Scattering a neutral atom from a charged wire
Institut für Experimentalphysik, Universität Innsbruck - A-6020 Innsbruck, Austria
Accepted: 15 April 1997
We investigate the scattering of cold, neutral atoms from a charged wire. For an infinitely thin, absorbing wire the interaction leads to quantum steps in the absorption cross section and diffraction structure in the differential scattering cross-section. We discuss the case of a finite-size wire and give parameters for a possible experimental realisation.
