LIF spectroscopy of laser-ablated atoms in He nanodroplets and dense He gas — •Sharareh Izadnia, Aaron Laforge, and Frank Stienkemeier — Physikalisches Institut, Universität Freiburg, Hermann-Herder-Str.3, 79104 Freiburg, Germany

Van der Waals forces make extremely weak intermolecular bonds and play a crucial role in physical, chemical, and biological systems. Until recently, helium dimers, with an average interatomic nuclear distance of 52 Å, were the weakest bound experimentally observed system [1]. Now, however, an even weaker system, LiHe dimers, has been found by Tariq et al.[2]. Using laser ablation of lithium in a cryogenically-cooled helium buffer gas, LiHe dimers were formed via a three body recombination process and experimentally observed by laser induced fluorescence (LIF)[2].In our lab, we have recently developed a method to dope helium nanodroplets using a similar laser ablation setup. Surprisingly, it was found that not only were the ablated materials doped to nanodroplets, but they were also seeded in a cold He gas jet. In light of this and the previous work, we plan to perform LIF spectroscopy on laser ablated alkali atoms doped to nanodroplets and seeded in a dense gas. Our experimental approach along with the first results will be shown.
