Photon Correlations, Atomic State Correlations and Statistical Distributions
First we will describe our experiment where the simultaneous excitation of two colliding helium atoms to various substate combinations is studied by detecting two emitted photons in coincidence. Next we will give the minimal symmetry properties of these two photon correlations. Furthermore the connection between photon correlations and the fundamental collision amplitudes will be treated and finally we will try to interpret the measurements in the context of statistical distributions.
