Laser Cooling and Trapping. Harold J. Metcalf, Peter van der Straten. General Properties Concerning Laser Cooling. Laser cooling is a relatively new technique that has led to insights into the behavior of atoms as well as confirming with striking detail some of the fundamental notions of quantum mechanics, such as the condensation predicted by .
Laser cooling allows one to slow atoms to roughly the speed of a mosquito and to control their motions with unprecedented precision. This elegant technique, whereby atoms, molecules, and even microscopic beads of glass, can be trapped in small regions of free space by beams of light and subsequently moved at will using other beams, has revolutionized many areas of physics. The book is intended for advanced undergraduates and beginning graduate students who have some basic knowledge of optics and quantum mechanics. Categories: Physics\Optics. Series: Graduate texts in contemporary physics.

Metcalf and P. van der Straten: Laser Cooling and Trapping . Phillies: Elementary Lectures in Statistical Mechanics . The book is written pedagogically. It is our intent that the depth and breadth of coverage will be useful as a graduate-level text in academia or a reference in industry. The concluding chapters discuss a broad range of applications, including atomic clocks, studies of ultra-cold collision processes, diffraction and interference of atomic beams, optical lattices, and Bose-Einstein condensation.
