Spin dependent inelastic collisions between metastable state two-electron atoms and ground state alkali-atoms
New Journal of Physics
Experimentally the spin dependence of inelastic collisions between ytterbium (Yb) in the metastable 3P0 state and lithium (Li) in the Li ground state manifold is investigated at low magnetic fields. Using selective excitation all magnetic sublevels mJ of 174Yb(3P0) are accessed and four of the six lowest lying magnetic sublevels of 6Li are prepared by optical pumping. On the one hand, mJ-independence of collisions involving Li(F=1/2) atoms is found. A systematic mJ-dependence in collisions withdoi:10.1088/1367-2630/aa8cec fatcat:5kupznbbgneibmmbzgvdvd4ipu
