Book cover: Interferometry with AtomsInterferometry with Atoms
by - arXiv ,
Optics and interferometry with matter waves is the art of coherently manipulating the translational motion of particles like atoms. Coherent atom optics is an extension of techniques that were developed for manipulating internal quantum states.

Book cover: Photons, SchmotonsPhotons, Schmotons
by - University of California ,
What the heck is a photon, anyway? You need to understand Maxwell's equations and quantum mechanics, and to understand how they fit together. This text won't teach you quantum electrodynamics. But they'll give you a nudge in the right direction.

Book cover: Optical Properties of SolidsOptical Properties of Solids
by - Academic Press ,
The present book attempts to fill a need for a fundamental textbook which explains the optical properties of solids. It is meant to explain a number of important concepts rather than present a complete survey of experimental data.
