Much of our realizing of physics within the final 30-plus years has come from study on atoms, photons, and their interactions. gathering details formerly scattered in the course of the literature, Modern Atomic Physics presents scholars with one unified consultant to modern advancements within the field.
After reviewing metrology and initial fabric, the textual content explains middle components of atomic physics. very important subject matters mentioned contain the spontaneous emission of radiation, inspired transitions and the houses of fuel, the physics and functions of resonance fluorescence, coherence, cooling and trapping of charged and impartial debris, and atomic beam magnetic resonance experiments. protecting criteria, a unique method of taking a look at a photon, motivated radiation, and frequency combs, the appendices steer clear of jargon and use old notes and private anecdotes to make the themes available to non-atomic physics students.
Written by way of a pace-setter in atomic and optical physics, this article offers a cutting-edge account of atomic physics inside a simple quantum mechanical framework. It exhibits scholars how atomic physics has performed a key position in lots of different components of physics.
