Field-Matter Coupling and Two-Level Systems

  • Frank Grossmann
Chapter
Part of the Graduate Texts in Physics book series (GTP)

Abstract

With this chapter, we start the applications part of this book by considering the interaction between lasers and matter. Lasers have already been discussed in Chap.  1.
