Light-matter interaction by John Weiner, Frederico Nunes

By John Weiner, Frederico Nunes

An intensive creation to atomic, molecular, and optical (AMO) technology and engineering Atomic, molecular, and optical (AMO) technological know-how and engineering stands on the confluence of sturdy medical and technological currents in physics, chemistry, and electric engineering. It seeks how you can extend our skill to take advantage of gentle for lots of reasons: to monitor and control topic on the atomic scale, to exploit nanostructures to control mild on the subwavelength scale, to increase quantum units, and to manage inner molecular movement and regulate chemical reactivity with gentle. The two-volume Light-Matter interplay attracts jointly the vital principles that shape the root of AMO technology and engineering. quantity 1: basics and functions fills many gaps left by means of typical classes and texts in chemical physics and electric engineering to provide the foundation of what the AMO scientist or engineer must construct a superb beginning of realizing within the box. prepared to function either textbook and trustworthy table connection with a various viewers starting from pupil and beginner to complicated practitioner, this ebook discusses either the basics and customary functions, together with: * Classical absorption and emission of radiation * Quantum dipole coupling to the two-level method * The optical Bloch equations * Quantized fields and dressed states * Optical forces and cooling from atom-light interplay * The laser in concept and perform * Geometrical and wave optics: concept and purposes * The Gaussian beam and optical resonators

Applied Prismatic and Reflective Optics

From the early floor and polished prism points of glass lighthouse Fresnel lenses to trendy microreplicated versatile Fresnel lenses for sun concentrators, new functions of prismatic optical parts for mild regulate are continually being constructed. moreover, ideas using unmarried and compound prismatic and reflective optical parts are rising within the fields of metrology, polarization regulate, projection structures, illumination, and exhibit lighting fixtures, between others.

The Arabic Version of Euclid’s Optics: Edited and Translated with Historical Introduction and Commentary Volume I

Like several classical Greek texts on technological know-how, Euclid's works on optics first and foremost got here to the West in most cases via medieval Arabic texts and commentaries. whereas a number of Greek types of the Optika have been came upon and translated as early because the 16th century, checking out what could have been Euclid's unique has now not been effortless.

Example text

This follows from a special symmetry (selection rules, cf. [59] and references therein) applicable to the transitions between the closest subbands of the metallic armchair SWNT’s. It results in the ballistic conductance of armchair M–SWNT’s for the low doping levels. These selection rules are also important for our study and will be considered next. 25). We recall that the pseudospin has the opposite sign, ±1, for states of the valence and conduction band, which are otherwise symmetrical4 with respect to the Fermi level at zero doping/injection: (C) (V ) Em,k,+1 = ζEmkζ = −Em,k,−1 .

For a typical NT NEMS geometry it constitutes 10 % or less, which corroborates post factum our perturbative approach. Also we note that (2) the quantum correction is inversely proportional to the DoS and thus disappears in the classical limit of an infinite DoS of a 3D bulk material. (3) The ratio of the classical capacitance to the quantum capacitance is not geometry (device) independent. 0 0 10 20 30 z, nm 40 Fig. 5. Specific charge density for two devices: (right) string and (left) cantilever NEMS.

This inhomogeneous field is capable of opening a semiconductor gap in the DoS of the armchair and/or quasi–metallic nanotube. The electron flow (at the Fermi level, which has to be in the middle of the forbidden gap in the gated region) is then classically suppressed (at T = 0). A quantum mechanical tunnelling mechanism has to be invoked in the current calculation because the effective mass of the electron in the SWNT is very light. Thus, the rate of tunnelling through the classically forbidden region is high.
