Atoms in Intense Laser Fields by Professor C. J. Joachain, N. J. Kylstra, R. M. Potvliege

By Professor C. J. Joachain, N. J. Kylstra, R. M. Potvliege

The advance of lasers in a position to generating high-intensity pulses has opened a brand new quarter within the research of light-matter interactions. The corresponding laser fields are powerful adequate to compete with the Coulomb forces in controlling the dynamics of atomic platforms and provides upward push to multiphoton strategies. This publication provides a unified account of this quickly constructing box of physics. the 1st half describes the basic phenomena happening in excessive laser-atom interactions and offers the fundamental theoretical framework to investigate them. the second one half includes a specific dialogue of Floquet concept, the numerical integration of the wave equations and approximation tools for the low- and high-frequency regimes. within the 3rd half, the most multiphoton tactics are mentioned: multiphoton ionization, excessive harmonic and attosecond pulse new release, and laser-assisted electron-atom collisions. geared toward graduate scholars in atomic, molecular and optical physics, the booklet also will curiosity researchers engaged on laser interactions with subject

Anomalous X-Ray Scattering for Materials Characterization (Springer Tracts in Modern Physics)

The evolution of our knowing of so much houses of latest useful fabrics is expounded to our wisdom in their atomic-scale constitution. To extra this, numerous X-ray and neutron concepts are hired. The anomalous X-ray scattering (AXS) procedure, exploiting the so-called anomalous dispersion influence close to the absorption fringe of the constituent aspect, is without doubt one of the strongest equipment for choosing the actual partial constitution capabilities of person pairs of parts or the environmental features round particular components in multicomponent platforms.

Principles of Laser Spectroscopy and Quantum Optics

Ideas of Laser Spectroscopy and Quantum Optics is a vital textbook for graduate scholars learning the interplay of optical fields with atoms. It additionally serves as a great reference textual content for researchers operating within the fields of laser spectroscopy and quantum optics. The publication presents a rigorous advent to the prototypical difficulties of radiation fields interacting with - and three-level atomic structures.

Theoretical Nuclear Physics

The final 20 years have witnessed a huge improvement of nuclear physics. a lot of info have amassed and plenty of experimental evidence are identified. because the experimental thoughts have completed higher and larger perfection, the theoretical research and interpretation of those info became correspondingly extra exact and unique.
