Description - Physics of Atoms and Molecules by B. H. Bransden
The study of atomic and molecular physics is a key component of undergraduate courses in physics, because of its fundamental importance to the understanding of many aspects of modern physics. The aim of this text is to provide a unified account of the subject within an undergraduate framework, taking the opportunity to make improvements based on the teaching experience of users of the first edition, and cover important new developments in the subject. Features include: revised material on molecular structure and spectra; extended material on electronic and atomic collisions; a new chapter on describing applications based on the use of the maser and the laser, including laser spectroscopy, laser cooling and trapping of atoms, Bose-Einstein condensation, atom lasers and atomic systemsin intense laser fields; a new chapter describing other applictions such as magnetic resonance, atom optics, atoms in cavities, ions in traps, atomic clocks and astrophysics; revised appendices with new material on molecules and an updated tables of physical constants.
