|Preliminary scope of work in English|
|Resonances are quasi-bound states of quantum systems (e.g. electron+atom) which are known to enhance or suppress scattering and other transitions in the system. How does the resonant scattering change in the presence of a laser field which allows for absorption of one or more photons? The goal of this work is to understand on simple 1D models the properties of laser-assisted electron scattering on potentials supporting resonances. The student will implement and test a program for numerical solution of the time-dependent Schroedinger equation and compare the transmission probabilities with/without the presence of the field and therefore characterize the effect the laser field has on the resonant scattering. In the future this work permits generalization to 2D models of laser-assisted electron molecule scattering including the nuclear motion.|
