The advance of lasers in a position to generating high-intensity pulses has opened a brand new quarter within the examine of light-matter interactions. The corresponding laser fields are powerful adequate to compete with the Coulomb forces in controlling the dynamics of atomic structures and provides upward thrust to multiphoton strategies. This ebook provides a unified account of this quickly constructing box of physics. the 1st half describes the basic phenomena taking place in extreme laser-atom interactions and provides the fundamental theoretical framework to investigate them. the second one half features a specified dialogue of Floquet idea, the numerical integration of the wave equations and approximation tools for the low- and high-frequency regimes. within the 3rd half, the most multiphoton tactics are mentioned: multiphoton ionization, excessive harmonic and attosecond pulse iteration, and laser-assisted electron-atom collisions. geared toward graduate scholars in atomic, molecular and optical physics, the booklet also will curiosity researchers engaged on laser interactions with topic.

Best Atomic Nuclear Physics books
For undergraduate physics scholars or for nuclear engineers.
The possibilities for doing scattering experiments at synchrotron and neutron amenities have grown swiftly in recent times and are set to proceed to take action into the foreseeable destiny. this article presents a easy figuring out of ways those ideas let the constitution and dynamics of fabrics to be studied on the atomic and molecular point.
This ebook is devoted to Professor Leonid V Keldysh. His marvelous contributions to condensed topic physics comprise the Franz-Keldysh influence, an electron-hole liquid, the nonequilibrium (Keldysh) diagram strategy, Bose-Einstein condensation (of excitons) and a ``metal-dielectric'' transition, acoustically-induced superlattices, multi-photon transitions and impression ionization in solids.
This e-book offers a bridge among the fundamental ideas of physics discovered as an undergraduate and the abilities and information required for complicated research and examine within the fascinating box of atomic physics. The textual content is equipped in a distinct and flexible structure --- as a set of difficulties, tricks, exact suggestions, and in-depth tutorials.
