Reorientation in Time Dependent Fields

Part of the Graduate Texts in Physics book series (GTP)


The generalized spin precession equation of the previous chapter is extended to systems subject to periodic time dependent perturbations. Main applications are in laser spectroscopy and nuclear or electron magnetic resonance. We discuss multiple-quantum transitions and dressed-atom effects, and give an outlook on experiments with nonclassical photon fields.
