Coherent Atomic Manipulation and Cooling: Interferometric by Alexander J. Dunning

By Alexander J. Dunning

This work unites the recommendations of laser cooling and matter-wave interferometry to boost an interferometric laser cooling method in an experimental procedure of chilly rubidium atoms. Serving as an advent to graduate point coherent optical atomic manipulation, the thesis describes the idea of inspired Raman transitions and atom interferometry, in addition to the experimental tools for getting ready and manipulating chilly atoms, ahead of development on those foundations to discover adapted optical pulse sequences and novel atomic cooling techniques.

Interferometric cooling, initially proposed via Weitz and Hänsch in 2000, relies upon the coherent broadband laser pulses of Ramsey interferometry and in precept permits laser cooling of atomic and molecular species outdoor the scope of conventional Doppler laser cooling. at the direction towards cooling, composite pulses – quantum errors correction equipment, constructed via chemists to mitigate the results of in homogeneities in NMR spectroscopy – are investigated with a view to enhancing the functionality of atom interferometers.

Quantum Mechanics in Chemistry (Dover Books on Chemistry)

Meant for graduate and complicated undergraduate scholars, this article explores quantum mechanical recommendations from the perspective of chemistry and fabrics technology. Dynamics, symmetry, and formalism are emphasised. An preliminary overview of easy suggestions from introductory quantum mechanics is by way of chapters reading symmetry, rotations, and angular momentum addition.

Quantum Mind and Social Science: Unifying Physical and Social Ontology

There's an underlying assumption within the social sciences that recognition and social lifestyles are finally classical physical/material phenomena. during this groundbreaking ebook, Alexander Wendt demanding situations this assumption by way of offering that attention is, actually, a macroscopic quantum mechanical phenomenon.

Back-of-the-Envelope Quantum Mechanics:With Extensions to Many-Body Systems and Integrable PDEs

Dimensional and order-of-magnitude estimates are practiced by way of virtually everyone yet taught virtually nowhere. whilst physics scholars interact of their first theoretical examine venture, they quickly research that precisely solvable difficulties belong in simple terms to textbooks, that numerical types are lengthy and source eating, and that “something else” is required to fast achieve perception into the method they will learn.

Intersection Spaces, Spatial Homology Truncation, and String Theory (Lecture Notes in Mathematics)

Intersection cohomology assigns teams which fulfill a generalized kind of Poincaré duality over the rationals to a stratified singular house. This monograph introduces a mode that assigns to convinced periods of stratified areas telephone complexes, referred to as intersection areas, whoseordinary rational homology satisfies generalized Poincaré duality.
