The Atom in an External Electric Field

  • Igor I. Sobelman
Part of the Springer Series on Atoms+Plasmas book series (SSAOPP, volume 12)


The influence of electric fields (especially, plasma microfields) on atomic levels and transition probabilities is very important for various applications of atomic spectroscopy. For this reason, not only quadratic and linear Stark effects in the homogeneous and static electric field, but also the effects of inhomogeneous and variable fields are considered in this chapter.
