Atom optics by Pierre Meystre

By Pierre Meystre

Some of the most profound revolutions led to by way of quantum mechanics is that it does away with the excellence among waves and debris: atoms, specifically, can convey all of the homes that we go together with wave phenomena, resembling diffraction and interference; it has lately even develop into attainable to arrange collections of atoms in coherent states, like these of photons in a laser beam. those advancements are on the center of the speedily increasing box of atom optics. ||Atom Optics steadily leads the reader from straightforward strategies to the frontiers of the sphere. it really is equipped in 3 components, linear, nonlinear, and quantum atom optics. After a overview of sunshine forces on atoms and of laser cooling, the 1st half discusses the appliance of sunshine forces to atom optical components akin to gratings, mirrors and lenses, matter-wave diffraction, and atomic traps and resonators. The dialogue of nonlinear atom optics starts off with a assessment of collisions from a point of view that basically demonstrates its profound analogy with nonlinear optics. The final half, quantum atom optics, first recollects key result of many-body idea in a formula geared in particular towards atom optics. this can be by means of a dialogue of atomic Bose-Einstein condensation and "atom lasers." the ultimate chapters deal with such purposes as atomic solitons, four-wave blending, superradiance, and finish with the coherent amplification of topic waves. ||An on-line net portion of the e-book, a gateway to atom optics, comprises hyperlinks to the prime references and journals within the box, to analyze websites, and to updates for the contents of the e-book.

FROM THE experiences:

"Atom optics this day has reached adulthood: It has turn into either wave (coherent) and nonlinear atom optics. in fact that enlargement required generalization in a brand new booklet. Pierre Meystre has taken simply this type of generalist process in his well timed ATOM OPTICS. His have been the pioneering works in atom optics; to get details from the 1st explorer is usually most beneficial to the reader ... Recommend[ed] to all strata of the physics community." -PHYSICS this day

Laser chemistry: spectroscopy, dynamics and applications

Laser Chemistry: Spectroscopy, Dynamics and purposes  provides a uncomplicated advent to the topic, written for students and different newcomers. It assumes little within the approach of past wisdom, and thoroughly courses the reader throughout the very important thought and ideas while introducing key ideas and purposes.

Rare-Earth Doped III-Nitrides for Optoelectronic and Spintronic Applications (Topics in Applied Physics)

This ebook summarises fresh development within the technological know-how and expertise of rare-earth doped nitrides, supplying a image of the sector at a severe aspect in its improvement. more desirable theoretical knowing of the behaviour of f-electrons in solids, pushed by way of accelerating computational potential, has coincided with a more robust skill of crystal growers to include infrequent earth parts reproducibly in large bandgap semiconductor hosts which are favoured for optoelectronic and spintronic functions.

Laser Beam Scintillation with Applications

Renewed curiosity in laser conversation platforms has sparked improvement of invaluable new analytic versions. This e-book discusses optical scintillation and its influence on procedure functionality in free-space optical verbal exchange and laser radar functions, with designated examine propagation phenomena and the function of scintillation on procedure habit.

Photorefractive Materials and Their Applications 3

This is often the ultimate quantity of a sequence dedicated to photorefractive results, photorefractive fabrics and their purposes. in view that ebook of the 1st volumes virtually two decades in the past, new and infrequently unforeseen results were chanced on. Theoretical versions were built, recognized results could be ultimately defined and novel purposes were proposed.

Clearly, the degree to which deuterium is destroyed is very sensitive to the chemical evolution model. In Figs. 1 and 2, the evolution of D IH is shown for the models considered. As one can see, a total deuterium destruction factor of 5 is certainly achievable in these simple models. The destruction of deuterium, however, is intimately connected to the question of the 3 He abundance. First of all, during the pre-main-sequence, essentially all of the primordial Dis converted into 3 He. Some of the pre-main-sequence produced and primordial 3 He will survive in stars and may even be produced (Iben, 42 10 8 0.......
