Problems2.2 Exit probabilities (essential problem) a. An analyzer is tilted by angle a. An atom leaving its + port is channeled into a vertical analyzer. What is the probability that this atom emerges from the + port? The — port? (Clue: Use the “rotate as a unit” concept introduced in section 2.2.51) z

b. An atom exiting the — port of a vertical analyzer is exactly hke one exiting the + port of an upside-down analyzer (see section 2.2.2). Such an atom is channeled into an analyzer tilted by angle 16. What is the probability that this atom emerges from the + port? The — port?

c. An analyzer is tilted by angle 7. An atom leaving its — port is channeled into a vertical analyzer. What is the probability that this atom emerges from the + port? The — port? z
