Advances in Atomic, Molecular, and Optical Physics
- Benjamin Bederson, New York University, U.S.A.
- Herbert Walther, Max-Planck Institut, Munich, Germany
This series, established in 1965, is concerned with recent developments in the general area of atomic, molecular, and optical physics. The field is in a state of rapid growth, as new experimental and theoretical techniques are used on many old and new problems. Topics covered also include related applied areas, such as atmospheric science, astrophysics, surface physics, and laser physics.View full description
Graduate students and researchers in atomic physics, atmospheric science, chemical physics, and applied fields.
