Ultracold Rydberg Physics
July 18th, 2017 ROBIN COTÉ University of Connecticut

We briefly review the properties of Rydberg atoms, and explore how their characteristics can be used to explore exotic atomic and molecular systems. In particular, we discuss how trilobite-like Rydberg states of dimers, trimers, tetramers, etc., could be used to probe the correlation function of ultracold gases. In addition, we show that trimer trolobite states could be used to shed light on Efimov states, those exotic three-body bound states existing even if the three individual pairs are not bound. We also describe potential experimental signatures.
