By Dieter Suter

This booklet presents a throrough creation to the interplay of atoms and atomic ions with optical and magnetic fields. the writer areas 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 common 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 insurance, and over 250 illustrations, the e-book may be of serious curiosity to graduate scholars of laser spectroscopy, quantum electronics and quantum optics, and to researchers in those fields.
