About this Textbook

This introduction to Atomic and Molecular Physics explains how our present model of atoms and molecules has been developed over the last two centuries both by many experimental discoveries and, from the theoretical side, by the introduction of quantum physics to the adequate description of micro-particles. It illustrates the wave model of particles by many examples and shows the limits of classical description. The interaction of electromagnetic radiation with atoms and molecules and its potential for spectroscopy is outlined in more detail and in particular lasers as modern spectroscopic tools are discussed more thoroughly. Many examples and problems with solutions are offered to encourage readers to actively engage in experimentation.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This book is an outstanding introduction to Atomic, Molecular and Quantum Physics. It reflects the author’s detailed knowledge of and very many years of scholarship in the field. I find it to be well written … . The text has very many pertinent diagrams that elucidate the mathematical equations and physical interactions under discussion. … I believe that this book is a valuable addition to the texts on the topic … . It is a very worthwhile addition to the library shelves." (John Holdsworth, Australian Physics, Vol. 32 (6), 2007)
