By Dieter Suter
This publication offers a throrough creation to the interplay of atoms and atomic ions with optical and magnetic fields. the writer locations specific emphasis at the wealth of significant multilevel results, the place atomic vapors convey anisotropic habit. in addition to masking the vintage two-level atom method of light-atom interactions, Suter describes intimately a normal multilevel formalism, which he makes use of to debate optical pumping, two-dimensional spectroscopy and nonlinear optical dynamics. the ultimate bankruptcy offers with the mechanical results of sunshine, together with the cooling and trapping of atoms. With complete theoretical and experimental assurance, and over 250 illustrations, the e-book should be of significant curiosity to graduate scholars of laser spectroscopy, quantum electronics and quantum optics, and to researchers in those fields.

For undergraduate physics scholars or for nuclear engineers.
The possibilities for doing scattering experiments at synchrotron and neutron amenities have grown speedily lately and are set to proceed to take action into the foreseeable destiny. this article offers a easy knowing of ways those strategies allow the constitution and dynamics of fabrics to be studied on the atomic and molecular point.
This e-book is devoted to Professor Leonid V Keldysh. His tremendous contributions to condensed topic physics contain the Franz-Keldysh influence, an electron-hole liquid, the nonequilibrium (Keldysh) diagram procedure, Bose-Einstein condensation (of excitons) and a ``metal-dielectric'' transition, acoustically-induced superlattices, multi-photon transitions and impression ionization in solids.
This booklet presents a bridge among the fundamental rules of physics realized as an undergraduate and the talents and data required for complicated research and learn within the intriguing box of atomic physics. The textual content is prepared in a special and flexible structure --- as a set of difficulties, tricks, certain strategies, and in-depth tutorials.
