Transverse deflection of beams of Kr Rydberg atoms. a Schematic diagram of the experimental setup, including the inhomogeneous dipolar electric field distribution above the two cylindrical metallic rods, used to transversely deflect beams of Kr atoms. b Stark map for Rydberg states with values of n close to 18 in Kr. The Stark states labelled A to F on the righthand side of the figure were selectively excited and subjected to the deflection fields. c Experimentally recorded (Expt.) and calculated (Calc.) images of beams of atoms after deflection.
