Current Trends in Atomic Physics

Antoine Browaeys, Thierry Lahaye, Trey Porto, Charles S. Adams, Matthias Weidemüller, and Leticia F. Cugliandolo

Abstract

This volume gathers the lectures notes of Session CVII of the Les Houches summer school of Physics, entitled “Current trends in Atomic Physics”. The school took place in July 2016 and had the goal to give the participants a broad overview of Atomic Physics as a whole, and in particular its connections to other areas of physics, such as condensed-matter and high-energy physics. The book comprises twelve chapters corresponding to lectures delivered at the school.

Keywords: atomic phyiscs, cold atoms, cold molecules, quantum optics, spectroscopy, ultrafast phenomena, quantum simulation, foundations of quantum physics, atom interferometry
