Strong-coupling effects in the relaxation dynamics of ultracold neutral plasmas
Journal of Physics, Conference Series
We describe a hybrid molecular dynamics approach for the description of ultracold neutral plasmas, based on an adiabatic treatment of the electron gas and a full molecular dynamics simulation of the ions, which allows us to follow the long-time evolution of the plasma including the effect of the strongly coupled ion motion. The plasma shows a rather complex relaxation behavior, connected with temporal as well as spatial oscillations of the ion temperature. Furthermore, additional laser coolingdoi:10.1088/1742-6596/11/1/022 fatcat:5zpty36zhravhbdphuswywozaq
