Atomic, Molecular, and Optical Physics: Atoms and Molecules

Front Cover
Academic Press, May 16, 1996 - Science - 435 pages
2 Reviews
Combined with the other two volumes, this text is a comprehensive treatment of the key experimental methods of atomic, molecular, and optical physics, as well as an excellent experimental handbook for the field. Thewide availability of tunable lasers in the past several years has revolutionized the field and lead to the introduction of many new experimental methods that are covered in these volumes. Traditional methods are also included to ensure that the volumes will be a complete reference source for the field.
