Atomic and Optical Physics II: Course Description

'Atomic and Optical Physics II' provides the background needed to do contemporary research in optical and atomic physics in selected areas. Specific topics include light's non-classical states, atomic interactions, multi-photon processes, cooling and trapping, coherence and experimental methods. The original course was lecture-based, and Professors Issac Chuang and Wolfgang Ketterle taught 'Atomic and Optical Physics II' in MIT's Physics Department.

'Atomic and Optical Physics II' OpenCourseWare includes access to problem sets, as well as a reading list. To look further into this course, please visit the physics of atoms and light course page.
