Editorial Reviews

Review


"An altogether useful, enjoyable book that can be used a resource, course text, and introduction to modern atomic research topics."--CHOICE


"Foot presents a textbook for an undergraduate course in atomic physics for students who understand quantum mechanics at the level of an introductory university course, including the Schrödinger equation in three dimensions and perturbation theory. After describing the basic principles of atomic structures and reviewing the classical ideas, he discusses laser spectroscopy, laser cooling, the Bose-Einstein condensation of dilute atomic vapors, matter-wave interferometry, and ion trapping."--SciTech Book News


About the Author

C.J. Foot was a Junior Research Fellow of Jesus College in Oxford 1984-86, as well as being awarded the Lindemann Trust Fellowship at Stanford University 1984-85 and the Royal Society University Research Fellowship 1986-1991. In 1991, he became a university lecturer and was awarded the title of Professor of physics in 2002. He won the National Physical Laboratory Metrology Award in 1990.

9 of 9 people found the following review helpful By W Boudville HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on May 25, 2005
Format: Paperback
This book has two types of material; both well done. The first could have been written decades ago, and is the "traditional" atomic physics. Where you start with the hydrogen atom, and investigate its spectroscopy with the Schrodinger equation. Then the book takes the next logical step by going to helium and thence to heavier atoms. LS and JJ coupling and other refinements. Such material is now quite well known and you need this for a solid background.

But the book also has much more recent material. On quantum computing using qubits. These attempt to use the quantum states of small groups of atoms, to perform computations fundamentally different from current digital efforts. Enough detail is given for you to appreciate the severe experimental travails of the field, and how much more remains to be done, if qubits are ever to become useful.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A very useful reference text for advanced undergraduate or higher atomic physics. It moves rather quickly and assumes prior knowledge of quantum mechanics, but provides a lot of good information on modern experimental techniques.
