G. Andrew Antonelli, An Examination of Atom-Field Interactions
This projected delved into the theory of atom-field interactions. A suite of software was developed to simulate certain problems in this theory. Both semiclassical and fully quantized models are examined. The quantized electromagnetic field and its interaction with a thermal reservoir is modeled as well. Numerous manners of visualizing these systems have been included such as the density matrix, Bloch vector, Wigner function, etc. The software is available for the Windows platform. A Hypertext version of the documentation is also available.
This work examined how ions react when placed in an electromagnetic trap through a molecular dynamics simulation. Both the Paul and Penning trap can be utilized. The formation of crystals in either Mathieu stability region can be throughly examined. The software is available for the Windows platform. A Hypertext version of the documentation is also available.
