Theorem relating spatial and temporal harmonics for nuclear interlevel transfer driven by collective electronic oscillation
Abstract
A crucial step in the development of gammaray lasers will be the discovery of an efficient mechanism for nuclear interlevel transfer. One promising mechanism uses the nearfield interaction between the nucleus and laserdriven collective electronic oscillations. This paper proves an important theorem relating spatial and temporal harmonics which states that 2(2n)poles are driven only at even multiples of the laser frequency, while 2(2n+1)poles are driven only at odd multiples of the laser frequency. The theorem's relevance to a proposed interleveltransfer experiment is discussed.
