Relatively assorted difficulties may be lumped jointly below the final time period 'laser regulate of atoms and molecules'. They contain the laser choice of atomic and molecular velocities for the aim of Doppler-free spectroscopy, laser regulate of the placement and pace of atoms (i.e. laser trapping and cooling of atoms), and laser keep an eye on of atomic and molecular approaches (ionization, dissociation) with a view of detecting unmarried atoms and molecules and especially keeping apart isotopes and nuclear isomers. during the last many years the imperative difficulties posed were effectively solved, and lots of of them have developed remarkably within the next investigations of the overseas study neighborhood. for instance, the answer of the matter of laser cooling and trapping of atoms has given start to the recent box of the physics of ultracold topic, i.e. quantum atomic and molecular gases. The laser non-coherent keep an eye on of uni-molecular approaches has stumbled on an enticing extension within the box of laser coherent keep an eye on of molecules. the idea that of laser regulate of place has been effectively tested with microparticles (optical tweezers), at the same time with investigations into atomic keep an eye on. The laser photo-ionization of molecules on surfaces has ended in the advance of novel thoughts of laser-assisted mass spectrometry of macromolecules, and so forth. the purpose of this e-book is to check those themes from a unified or 'coherent' viewpoint. will probably be precious for lots of readers in numerous fields of laser technological know-how and its applications.
