Electric field distributions in the off-axis decelerator and trap. Electric field distributions in the yz plane of the off-axis trap (a) at the time of photoexcitation and after completion of the trapping process, (b) in the initial phase of on-axis deceleration, (c) during the 90° deflection process, and (d) in the final deceleration phase. The lines of constant electric field range in (a) from 10 to 100 V/cm in steps of 10 V/cm, and (bd) from 20 to 200 V/cm in steps of 20 V/cm. The red shaded circles indicate the center of the Rydberg atom cloud at each time. From [105]
