Atomic Physics: Precise Measurements and Ultracold Matter

Massimo Inguscio and Leonardo Fallani

Abstract

Are the fundamental constants of Nature really constant? How can we build clocks that lose only a few seconds on the entire life of the Universe? This book answers these questions by illustrating the history and the most recent advances in atomic physics connected to the possibility of performing precise measurements and achieving the ultimate control of the atomic state. Written in an introductory style, this book is addressed to undergraduate and graduate students, as well as to more experienced researchers who need to stay up-to-date with the most recent advances. It is not a classical atom ... More

Keywords: atomic physics, laser spectroscopy, laser cooling, ultracold atoms, atomic clocks, interferometers
