Electrode configuration of a Rydberg atom mirror. ac Schematic diagrams of the set of metallic electrodes used to reflect beams of H Rydberg atoms in a normal incidence mirror. The electric potentials and corresponding field distributions at the time of (a) photoexcitation, (b) deceleration/reflection, and (c) detection are displayed. c Time-dependence of the electric potentials applied to each mirror electrode.
