Hence in external electric fields all bound states become quasibound due to tunneling. Then we will discuss tunneling through a potential barrier in general, followed by a basic discussion of the Stark effect. Because not only static external electric fields, which give rise to the celebrated Stark effect, are of principal interest, we will also discuss the behavior of a Rydberg electron under subpicosecond electric pulses. These studies are not only of fundamental interest but give also a better understanding of problems such as the transport of ions and atoms through solids or for fusion plasma modeling and diagnostics.

By the 1980s, stellarators were producing plasmas with temperatures near 2 keV and with confinement times up to 30 ms, only slightly worse than tokamaks of similar size (13,14). Since stellarators have a natural ability to operate in steady state (tokamaks, the most developed confinement device, tend to work in pulsed mode), these results generated great interest and prompted the construction of more ambitious experiments. Currently two very large stellarators are under construction. FUSION PLASMAS Figure 5.

These processes could also be generalized to multi-ionized donors and acceptors. 6 eV. Therefore at room temperature most impurities are ionized and contribute to the conductivity because their ionization energies are comparable to kBT, kB being the Boltzmann constant. (1 eV is equivalent to a temperature of 11,400 K. ) Therefore even at low temperatures a finite nonzero concentration of ionized impurities exist. These ionized impurities create electric fields due to their charge and hence neutral donors are embedded in local electric fields with a randomly distributed field strength, and this causes Stark shifting in the level structure.
