Physics and Astronomy
Scott Whitfield was the lead author and co-author, respectively, on the following articles: "Xe 5s angular distributions in the region of the second Cooper minimum," Journal of Physics B, Vol. 40, 3647, 2007, with UW-Eau Claire alumnus Joe Kane and R. Wehlitz; and "Beryllium doubly excited autoionizing resonances between the 2p and 3p thresholds," Physical Review A, Vol. 76, 032701, 2007, with P. Olalde-Velasco, E. Méndez-Martínez, J. Jiménez-Mier, and R. Wehlitz. These papers explore the fundamental interaction of light and matter in atomic systems. The data obtained in these studies will aid quantum mechanical calculations in more accurately modeling this interaction. Go to top of page
