"Photodetachment From Trapped Ions in External Fields"
What are negative ions, and why should we be interested in them? And what is photodetachment? In this talk I briefly present some of the pertinent background to negative ions and the field of photodetachment dynamics. I will then describe several experiments spanning the areas of continuum electron wavepackets, detachment in external electric and magnetic fields, and precision detachment spectroscopy.
