The dashed lines show the decay channels for Zeeman sublevels. 1s 1/2 F = 2 F' = 3 MF'MF' MFMF

This leads to the of the 1s 1/2 F' = 3 state. The selective laser excitation to the 1s 1/2 F' = 3 state is performed by a laser with frequency ω. This leads to the partial polarization of the 1s 1/2 F' = 3 state. After the laser is switched off, the spontaneous decay to the ground state leads to its partial polarization during (lifetime of the F' = 3 level). After the laser is switched off, the spontaneous decay to the ground state leads to its partial polarization during 10.9 ms (lifetime of the F' = 3 level).

6 1.3 Description of polarization The polarization state of an ion after i-th "cycle" (switching on the laser) is described by the density matrix: ρ F (i) = Σ MF n FMF (i) ψ FMF * ψ FMF. Normalization condition: Σ MF n FMF (i) = 1, ψ FMF are the wavefunctions, n FMF (i) the occupation numbers F, M F the total angular momentum and projection of an ion Degree λ of polarization is defined as: λ F (i) = F -1 Σ MF n FMF (i) M F Nonpolarized ions: n FMF = (2F + 1) -1, λ F = 0 Fully polarized ions: n FF = 1, λ F = 1

7 1.4 Dynamics of polarization The occupation numbers are defined with the recurrence relations via the M1 transition probabilities: width of the sublevel F’M’ F

10 of one- and two-electron ions 1.6 Polarization of one- and two-electron ions Polarization in He-like ions with total electron angular momentum equal to zero (2 1 S 0, 2 3 P 0 ) is nuclear polarization. In polarized the nuclei are also polarized, In polarized one-electron HCI the nuclei are also polarized, due to the strong hyperfine interaction (hyperfine splitting in the order of ). Polarization time is about. in the order of 1 eV). Polarization time is about s. The capture of the second electron by the polarized one-electron ion does not destroy the nuclear polarization: the capture time, defined by the Coulomb interaction, is much smaller than the depolarization time, defined by the hyperfine interaction. If the total angular momentum of the two-electron ion appears to be zero (2 1 S 0, 2 3 P 0 ) the nuclear polarization remains unchanged.

11 2. Preservation of the ion beam polarization in storage rings 2.1 Dynamics of the HCI in a magnetic system of a storage ring The magnetic system of a storage ring (GSI) consists of a number of magnets including magnets which generate field components to the ion trajectory, quadrupole magnets and the electron cooler magnet (solenoid). The magnetic system of a storage ring (GSI) consists of a number of magnets including bending magnets which generate field components orthogonal to the ion trajectory, focusing quadrupole magnets and the longitudinal electron cooler magnet (solenoid). The latter one was also proposed to be used for the of the ions via selective laser excitation. The latter one was also proposed to be used for the longitudinal polarization of the ions via selective laser excitation. The peculiarity of storing polarized HCI compared to stored electrons or protons is that the is defined by the whereas the is defined by the. The peculiarity of storing polarized HCI compared to stored electrons or protons is that the trajectory dynamics is defined by the nuclear mass, whereas the spin dynamics is defined by the electron mass.

12 The in a magnetic system of a ring can The movement of an ion in a magnetic system of a ring can be described with the equation of motion: be described classically with the equation of motion: dv/dt = k (H x v) k = -Ze/Mc, v is the ion velocity, M, Ze are mass and charge of the nucleus, H is the magnetic field In the rest frame of an ion the motion appears like in a time- dependent field. The spin dynamics which is influenced by the transitions between hyperfine and Zeeman sublevels we describe quantum - mechanically.

13 2.2 Spin dynamics and the instantaneous quantization axis (IQA) Relativistic effects are neglected (at GSI ring γ ≈ 1) Spin motion in the ion reference system is described by the Schrödinger equation: [i ∂/∂t + μ 0 H(t) s] χ S (t) = 0 ( ∗ ) H(t) is the magnetic field, s is the spin operator The IQA, denoted as ζ, we define via an equation: ∂/∂t = 0 ( ∗∗ ) From ( ∗ ) and ( ∗∗ ) follows the equation for IQA: ∂ζ/∂t = μ 0 (H(t) x ζ(t)) ( ∗∗∗ )

14 Equation ( ∗∗∗ ) coincides with the for the spin motion, however the definition ( ∗∗ ) is convenient for the quantum-mechanical description of polarization. Equation ( ∗∗∗ ) coincides with the pure classical equation for the spin motion, however the definition ( ∗∗ ) is convenient for the quantum-mechanical description of polarization. It can be proved that the with respect to IQA remains in an arbitrary time-dependent field. It can be proved that the degree of polarization with respect to IQA remains constant in an arbitrary time-dependent field. It can be also proved that the with respect to IQA in the process of of the excited hyperfine sublevel, i.e. remains the same for the ground- and excited hyperfine sublevels. It can be also proved that the degree of polarization with respect to IQA does not change in the process of spontaneous decay of the excited hyperfine sublevel, i.e. remains the same for the ground- and excited hyperfine sublevels.

15 2.3 Rotation of IQA in the magnetic field of a bending magnet at GSI ring The initial polarization is directed along the longitudinal (z) axis: ζ x (0) = 0, ζ y (0) = 0, ζ z (0) = 1 The magnetic field is oriented along the vertical (x) axis: The magnetic field H is oriented along the vertical (x) axis: H x = H(t), H y = H z = 0 Solution of the Schrödinger equation reads: ζ x (t) = 0, ζ y (t) = sin φ(t), ζ z (t) = cos φ(t) t t φ(t) = μ 0 /ћ ∫ H(t') dt' (A) 0 The IQA rotates in the horizontal plane (yz) with the time- dependent frequency ω(t) = φ(t) / t

16 The trajectory rotation occurs due to the Lorentz force. Roughly we can write the rotation angle for the ion trajectory after passing one GSI bending magnet (60 0 = π/3): t μ N /ћ ∫ H(t') dt' = π/3 (B) 0 where μ N = Zmμ 0 /M. For Eu ions μ N = · μ 0 By comparing eqs. (A) and (B) we conclude that the rotation angle for IQA after passing one bending magnet amounts to about 10 4 π. Thus, it will be extremely difficult to fix the direction of polarization before the start of the PNC experiment.

17 2.4 Solution of the problem: "Siberian Snake" A Siberian Snake the polarization (IQA). If after one revolution of an ion in the ring the IQA will acquire a deviation from the longitudinal direction, the Siberian Snake will rotate it like: A Siberian Snake rotates the polarization (IQA) by an angle π around the z-axis. If after one revolution of an ion in the ring the IQA will acquire a deviation from the longitudinal direction, the Siberian Snake will rotate it like: beam Siberian Snake Snake IQA Then, after two revolutions, the deviation caused by any reason will be canceled. It remains to count the revolutions and to start a PNC experiment after an even number of revolutions.Counting the revolutions seems to be possible for a bunched beam.

18 Thehyperfine quenching 3. Diagnostics of polarization 3.1 The hyperfine quenching (HFQ) of polarized two- electron ions in an external magnetic field The HFQ transition probability for the polarized ion in an external magnetic field: W HFQ = W 0 HFQ [ 1 + Q 1 (ζh)] where W 0 HFQ is the HFQ transition rate in the absence of the external field, and h=H/ | H |. In case of the 2 1 S 0 – 1 1 S 0 HFQ, the coefficient Q 1 is: 1 Q 1 = 2 λ / μ is the magnetic moment of an electron, H HF is the hyperfine interaction Hamiltonian

19 The net signal (after switching off the magnetic field) is: Δ W HFQ = Q 1 W 0 HFQ too small to be observed! However, as we shall see this is the unique experiment which allows for the direct measurement of the degree of polarization in the HFQ transition For He-like Eu (Z = 63) and H = 1 T→ Q 1 =

20 Employment of REC (Radiative Electron Capture) 3.2 Employment of REC (Radiative Electron Capture) Employment of REC for the control of polarization of HCI beams via measurement of linear polarization of X-rays was studied in: A. Shurzhikov, S. Fritzsche, Th. Stöhlker and S. Tashenov, Phys. Rev. Lett. 94 (2005) The formula tan 2χ ~ λ F was confirmed experimentally (for λ F = 0) by: S. Tashenov et al. PRL 97 (2006) We will study the possibility for the control of the HCI beam polarization via measurement of linear polarization of X-rays in HFQ transitions.

21 Linear polarization of X-ray photons in HFQ transitions in polarized ions 3.3 Linear polarization of X-ray photons in HFQ transitions in polarized ions Photon density matrix k is the photon momentum: k =, is frequency, ‘ are the helicities: = s ph =± 1 The photon spin s ph =i( e* × e ), i.e. is defined only for the circular polarization (complex e ). P i : (i = 1,2,3) are the Stokes parameters

23 of the photon density matrix 3.5 Rotation of the photon density matrix IQA Choice of the quantization axis: along IQA (beam polarization). The photon density matrix is written with the quantization axis ν. necessary It is necessary to rotate this matrix by an angle. The result for the transition between two bound states with the total electron momentum j, j‘ Here: A LM L - photon wave function, LM L – photon angular momentum and projection, – Dirac matrices n jm – occupation numbers for the initial electron states (define electron polarization) D 0 () – Wigner function; in our case =45 0

24 2 1 S 0 →1 1 S Application to the 2 1 S 0 →1 1 S 0 HFQ transition (magnetic dipole photons) F F – total angular momentum of an ion; n FM F – occupation numbers P M 1 =0 Nonplarized ions: n FM F = const : P M 1 =0 ; P M 2 =0 P M 2 =0 independent on the polarization. Hence, the photons are nonpolarized if they are emitted by nonpolarized by nonpolarized ions. 2 1 S Eu 61+ For 2 1 S 0 state of Eu 61+ : F=I=5/2, n 5/2 5/2 = 5/6, n 5/2 3/2 = 1/6 F = I = (1/F) Σ M F n FM F M F = 0.93 P M 1 = -0.4P M 2 =0 P M 1 = -0.4, P M 2 =0

25 Polarization and 3.7 Polarization and alignment Thus, one cannot extract the degree of polarization F from the Stokes parameters the degree of alignment Stokes parameter P M 1 defines „the degree of alignment“ which can be defined as a F =Σ M F n FM F M F 2 - a 0 F where a 0 F =Σ M F (2F+1)-1 M F 2 = 1/3 F(F+1) Then for the fully nonpolarized ions a F =0. However, using the value of a F (as extracted from P M 1 ) one can check whether the ion polarization has its maximum value. For the maximum polarization n FM F = F,MF and a max F = 1/3 F(2F - 1)

26 parameters for the 2 3 P 0 →1 1 S 0 HFQ transition (electric dipole photons) 3.8 Stokes parameters for the 2 3 P 0 →1 1 S 0 HFQ transition (electric dipole photons) 2 3 P 0 →1 1 S 0 For the investigation of the PNC effects in He-like Eu and Gd ions it will be important to know also the Stokes parameters for electric photons (transition 2 3 P 0 →1 1 S 0 ). P E 1 = + 0.4P E 2 =0 For Eu ions: P E 1 = + 0.4, P E 2 =0 P M,E 1 = ∓ 0.4 The result P M,E 1 = ∓ 0.4 means that 70% of ions, polarized along I 0 axis are electric ones, and 70% of ions, polarized along I 90 axis are magnetic ones.

27 to measure the degree of the ion polarization via linear polarization. 3.9 Impossibility to measure the degree of the ion polarization via linear X-ray polarization. There are general arguments why the beam polarization (i.e. the degree of polarization) cannot be defined via the linear polarization of emitted photons. pseudeoscalar If it would be possible, the probability should contain a pseudeoscalar term, constructed from the vectors and e (for electric photons) or and (e ×k) (for magnetic ones). Moreover, this term should be quadratic in e or (e ×k). It is easy to check that such constructions, linear in, cannot be built, and only quadratic in terms like (e) 2 or ((e×k)) 2 can arise. From these quadratic terms one can define the alignment, but not the polarization. The only possibility to measure the beam polarization via X-ray polarization is to use the circular polarization. Then W HFQ = W HFQ 0 [1 + Q 2 ( s ph )] s ph = i (e*×e) photon spin

41 4.12 Possible determination of the degree of a F 4.12 Possible determination of the degree of alignment a F no smallness parity conserving vanishes The term containing a F gives the possibility to measure the degree of alignment (or to check whether the maximum polarization is achieved) in a most simple way. This term has no smallness compared to 1, provided that the polarization (and alignment) is of the order of 1. It is parity conserving and corresponds to the scalars of the type (ν) 2, (×ν) 2 in the expression for the probability. It also vanishes when the polarization is absent, since then a F = 0. For defining a F one has to measure dW HFQ for two different angles: dW HFQ (θ=0) - dW HFQ (θ=π/2) / dW HFQ 0 = - (18/35) a F
