Editorial Reviews

Review

`This is a very timely book. The author has chosen a very modern set of topics, ones that increasingly are at the heart of the field of atomic and optical physics... I am aware of no competing textbook that offers this wide selection of topics at the cutting edge of this discipline.' Chris Greene, University of Colorado, Boulder

`...a useful text on atomic physics and fills something of a gap between traditional textbooks and highly specialised books on the more modern topics.' Charles Adams, University of Durham

`The approach to the modern topics, in particular the many connections to the classical developments of the field is masterly done.' Klaus Molmer, University of Aarhus

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.
