Time-dependent deceleration and trapping potentials. Time dependence of the electric potentials applied to electrodes 1–4 in Fig. 16(a). a Ionisation pulses applied to electrodes 1 and 2 to detect the trapped Rydberg atoms. b Exponentially decaying deceleration potentials applied to electrodes 3 and 4. The horizontal axis represents the time after photoexcitation
