Intended mainly for experimentalists, this book discusses in detail the many advances in optical physics made over the last 25 years. The author uses classical or semi-classical calculations wherever possible to introduce the interaction of electromagnetic radiation with free atoms. Topics discussed include the spontaneous emission of radiation; stimulated transitions and the properties of gas and tunable dye lasers; and the physics and applications of resonance fluorescence, optical double resonance, optical pumping, and atomic beam magnetic resonance experiments. Favorably reviewed in its hardcover edition, physicists from a variety of fields will find this reissue as timely now as it was when first published in 1977.
