Time evolution of charged particle wave functions in optical crystal: The coherent Kapitza-Dirac effect for plasma-based proton beams

18 Feb 2020 Barman Sushanta Bhattacharjee Sudeep

The stationary eigenstates and eigenvalues for the ponderomotive potential of an optical crystal confined in a one-dimensional infinite square well are numerically obtained. The initial states of the incoming particles taken as Gaussian, are expanded in the basis of the stationary eigenstates of the ponderomotive potential, to obtain the subsequent time evolution of the wave function of the particle during the interaction with the optical crystal...
