Abstract

A review of current work at Manchester is given, with emphasis on low energy electron impact ionization & excitation experiments from laser-prepared targets. Three different methods are considered: super-elastic scattering from targets prepared by laser radiation in an optical enhancement cavity, (e,2e) studies of laser-aligned atoms, and electron impact ionization studies from laser cooled atoms in a new type of atom trap - the AC-MOT. The status of each experimental programme is detailed, and new data presented. Future directions and techniques are then discussed.
