About this book

For the first time, this book assembles in a single volume accounts

of many phenomena involving quantum interference in optical fields

and atomic systems. It provides detailed theoretical treatments and

experimental analyses of such phenomena as quantum erasure, quantum

lithography, multi-atom entanglement, quantum beats, control of

decoherence, phase control of quantum interference, coherent

population trapping, electromagnetically induced transparency and

absorption, lasing without inversion, subluminal and superluminal

light propagation, storage of photons, quantum interference in phase

space, interference and diffraction of cold atoms, and interference

between Bose-Einstein condensates. This book fills a gap in the

literature and will be useful to both experimentalists and theoreticians.
