Quantum Electronics for Atomic Physics offers a direction in quantum electronics for researchers in atomic physics. The publication covers the standard themes, reminiscent of Gaussian beams, cavities, lasers, nonlinear optics and modulation innovations, but additionally features a variety of components no longer often present in a textbook on quantum electronics. It comprises such useful concerns because the enhancement of nonlinear strategies in a build-up hollow space, impedance matching right into a hollow space, laser frequency stabilization (including servomechanism theory), astigmatism in ring cavities, and atomic/molecular spectroscopic suggestions for the iteration of a discriminant for laser frequency locking. a couple of very contemporary advancements are mentioned, resembling fiber lasers and frequency metrology utilizing femtosecond lasers. challenge units are incorporated on the finish of every bankruptcy.
