My research interests:



Photon and electron interaction with atoms and molecules:



Many everyday phenomena are related to interactions of photons, electrons and electromagnetic waves with matter. Some have been fascinating people for centuries: northen lights, sunrise and sunset, night sky full of stars etc. There are also many new devices and phenomena, some of which we take for granted: the screen of our computer or television set, or the bar code reader in grocery store. Many of these devices would not exist, where it not for the work of many scientists who were solving problems that many people would consider unimportant at the time.

Our research, which will produce many electron impact cross sections, will help to better understand processes in low temperature plasmas which are important for the semiconductor industry or for various processes taking place in the stratosphere. The research on the Surface Acoustic Tag might well provide useful replacement for the bar code reader.

Photon and electron interactions with atoms and molecules.

The investigation carried out using two separate sets of apparatus:

a) A Magneto-Optical Trap,

b) A time of flight apparatus with a matrix isolation detector.



a) Cooling and trapping of atoms and molecules is a very active field of research with applications in areas such as Bose-Einstein condensation (BEC), quantum computing and nanotechnology. I am currently collaborating with Dr. J.W. McConkey in our department in a project of optical manipulation of cesium atoms for electron collision experiments using a magneto-optical trap (MOT). The Cs atoms in the vacuum chamber are trapped using three doubled laser beams and a quadrupole magnetic field, and are impacted by the electron beam produced by an electron gun. Absolute electron collision cross sections are measured in a MOT by employing the atom recoil technique. The cross sections can be obtained without knowing the absolute target densities (see Schape et al 1996). Only the incident electron flux and ejection rate of trapped atoms, from both electron collisions and background collisions, are required (see McAskil et al 2002). This research concentrates on obtaining absolute total cross sections for the ground state and excited states of cesium atoms and dimers. In order to attain these objectives I intend to modify the apparatus to measure absolute electron-impact excitation and ionization cross sections for the 6S ground state and 6P excited state of cesium. This will require the ability to detect very week photon signals in near-infrared region (1469.5nm 7S - 6P transition in Cs) which can be achieved only with the help of a very special photomultiplier (Hamamatsu R5509-72 with cooler - a remarkable new device that has single photon sensitivity over a spectral region up to 1700nm).



b) Absolute values of many electron impact cross sections are needed by physicists and astrophysicists, who are numerically simulating complicated collision processes in low temperature plasmas or in atmospheres of planets, stars and comets. Many of these cross sections are very difficult to measure and are not yet known. Some very interesting and important electron impact processes are those leading to the dissociation of molecules with production of atoms in metastale states. We are measuring absolute cross sections for many of these processes in our laboratory (collaboration with Dr. McConkey), in time of flight experiment with a fragment-specific detector based on the cold matrix isolation technique (see Kedzierski 2002, Kedzierski et al 2001, 2000 and 1998 ) , but we are restricted by the temperature of the martix and sensitivity of the photomultiplier. Up to now, we were able to measure the absolute cross section for the production of oxygen in the 1S state and sulfur in the 1S state from various molecules. I would now like to modify the existing detector, to make it sensitive to oxygen and sulfur in the 1D state. The essential parts of the new detection system consist of the Hamamatsu R5509-72 photomultiplier with cooler and Helitran cryogenic system DE 202.

RF Sensor (Surface Acoustic Tag) development:



The operation of SAW-tag reader systems at high level of parasitic reflection in an industrial environment. Industrial partner: Baumer Ident AG, Frauenfeld, Switzerland (in negotiation).

I am also collaborating with Dr.R Maev ( NSERC-Chrysler Industrial Chair) on applications of surface acoustic waves (SAW) in the automotive industry. We shall to investigate the possibility of applying SAW in low cost passive RF-Identification tags. The proposed research calls for a detailed investigation of piezoelectric media in which SAW can be generated and of their simple detection. The following is the general principle of operation of an RF-ID tag. As soon as a tagged unit enters the monitoring range of the transmitting antenna, the tag receives the interrogating microwave signal and emits a specific response signal. The heart of a passive RF-Identification tag is a piezoelectric device with a transducer which converts the electrical signal into a surface acoustic wave. The generated SAW is a periodic mechanical deformation propagating with a relatively low velocity compared to the speed of light. Several reflectors, acting like mirrors, are placed near the transducer on the tag surface, leading to a partial reflection of the interrogating pulse emitted by the transmitting antenna outside. The delay of the signal is proportional to the distance between the reflectors and the transducer. After a few microseconds, depending on the position of the reflector, the SAW arrives with a certain delay at the transducer and the reflected acoustic wave is again converted into an electrical signal. Subsequently, the electrical signal will be reemitted by the tag's antenna as a microwave signal received by the monitor. The use of this echo principle makes possible the implementation of a completely passive code carrier (tag) needing no additional power source. Consequently, passive RF-identification tags can withstand temperatures up to 250C. When SAW devices are used as sensors, the measured responses arise from perturbations in wave propagation characteristics, specifically wave velocity and attenuation, resulting from interactions between the SAW and the surface layer. Because SAW propagating in a piezoelectric medium generate both mechanical deformation and an electrical potential, both mechanical and electrical couplings between the SAW and the surface layer are possible. The research will include testing the effect of the above perturbations (that are affected by temperature, humidity, vibration, presence of strong magnetic and electric fields) on the accuracy and lifetime of the SAW tag. The possibility of increasing the number of acoustic channels to increase the amount of information stored in the SAW tag will also be investigated. To determine the surface acoustic wave velocity and attenuation, the time evolution of the wavefront of the emitted SAW will be mapped out using a micro-acoustic probe or a laser beam (see Azan et al 1979, Hess et al 1999) which will scan the surface of the tag with the help of computer-controlled stepper motors. The generated signal will be received by a fast digital oscilloscope and will be stored in a computer . Information about propagation of the surface acoustic wave is important to understand the reasons for malfunction of the tag in extreme conditions, as well as the factors that limit the maximal code range (number of bits).

The propagation of a surface acoustic wave on a tag can also be investigated using holographic interferometry (see Thiba et al 1976). This experimental approach will be considered in the future.
