Interactions between Thermal Ground or Excited Atoms in the Gas Phase: Many Body Dipole-Dipole Effects, Molecular Dissociation, and Photoassociation Probed by Laser Spectroscopy (J.G. Eden, B.J. Ricconi, Y. Xiao, F. Shen and A.A. Senin) Chapter 3. Bose-Einstein Condensates in Disordered Potentials (L. Fallani, C. Fort and M. Inguscio) Chapter 4. Dipole - dipole Interactions of Rydberg Atoms (Th.F. Gallagher and P. Pillet) Chapter 5. Strong-field control of X-ray processes (R. Santra, R.W. Dunford, E.P. Kanter, B. Krässig, S.H. Southworth and L. Young) Chapter 6. Optical Trapping Takes Shape: The Use of Structured Light Fields (K. Dholakia and W.M. Lee)


This volume continues the tradition of the Advances series. It contains contributions from experts in the field of atomic, molecular, and optical (AMO) physics. The articles contain some review material, but are intended to provide a comprehensive picture of recent important developments in AMO physics. Both theoretical and experimental articles are included in the volume.
