8.422 Atomic and Optical Physics II

Class Info

The second of a two-term subject sequence that provides the foundations for contemporary research in selected areas of atomic and 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; and experimental methods.

This class has 8.05 as a prerequisite.

8.422 will be offered this semester (Spring 2019).

Lecture occurs 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM on Mondays and Wednesdays in 56-114.
