By Peter van der Straten,Harold Metcalf

This in-depth textbook with a spotlight on atom-light interactions prepares scholars for examine in a fast-growing and dynamic box. meant to accompany the laser-induced revolution in atomic physics, it's a complete textual content for the rising period in atomic, molecular and optical technological know-how. applying an intuitive and actual strategy, the textual content describes two-level atom transitions, together with appendices on Ramsey spectroscopy, adiabatic speedy passage and entanglement. With a special specialise in optical interactions, the authors current multi-level atomic transitions with dipole choice ideas, and M1/E2 and multiphoton transitions. traditional constitution issues are mentioned in a few element, starting with the hydrogen atom and those are interspersed with fabric hardly ever present in textbooks resembling intuitive descriptions of quantum defects. the ultimate chapters study sleek functions and comprise many references to present study literature. the varied workouts and a number of appendices all through permit complex undergraduate and graduate scholars to stability concept with experiment.

Angular Momentum Techniques in Quantum Mechanics (Fundamental Theories of Physics)

A path in angular momentum recommendations is vital for quantitative examine of difficulties in atomic physics, molecular physics, nuclear physics and stable country physics. This publication has grown out of this kind of direction given to the scholars of the M. Sc. and M. Phil. measure classes on the college of Madras.

The Nonlinear Schrödinger Equation: Singular Solutions and Optical Collapse (Applied Mathematical Sciences)

This publication is an interdisciplinary creation to optical cave in of laser beams, that's modelled by means of singular (blow-up) ideas of the nonlinear Schrödinger equation. With nice care and element, it develops the topic together with the mathematical and actual history and the background of the topic.

Rotational Spectra and Molecular Structure: Physical Chemistry: A Series of Monographs

Actual Chemistry, a chain of Monographs: Rotational Spectra and Molecular constitution covers the strength degrees and rotational transitions. This publication is split into 9 chapters that review the inflexible uneven best molecules and the nuclear spin facts for uneven tops. a number of the themes lined within the e-book are the uneven rotor capabilities; rotational transition intensities; periods of molecules; nuclear spin statistics for linear molecules and symmetric tops; and classical visual appeal of centrifugal and coriolis forces.
