This is the second of a two-semester subject sequence beginning with Atomic and Optical Physics I (8.421) that provides the foundations for contemporary research in selected areas of atomic and optical physics. Topics covered include non-classical states of light, multi-photon processes, coherence, trapping and cooling, atomic interactions, and experimental methods.
atomic, optical physics, Non-classical states of light, squeezed states, multi-photon processes, Raman scattering, coherence, level crossings, quantum beats, double resonance, superradiance, trapping and cooling, light forces, laser cooling, atom optics, spectroscopy of trapped atoms and ions, atomic interactions, classical collisions, quantum scattering theory, ultracold collisions, experimental methods
