Synopsis: Atomic frequency standards provide the most accurate measurements in physics. The Quantum Physics of Atomic Frequency Standards is an extensive survey of the subject covering both theoretical and experimental aspects together with applications. As an accessible and essential reference it will be invaluable to experienced researchers and beginners alike. The first volume begins with a quantum mechanics treatment of the interaction of static fields and electromagnetic radiation with atoms and molecules. Each of the important phenomena - noise, relaxation, broadening and frequency shifts - is treated in detail and optical pumping and population inversion are explained. With all the background material now in place the major part of these volumes is devoted to a theoretical analysis of the operation of the numerous atomic frequency standards that are either in use, are being studied or have been proposed. * Caesium atomic beam frequency standards * Hydrogen maser * Rubidium frequency standards * Mercury ion trap * Frequency stabilized lasers In the final chapter the authors discuss the impact of atomic frequency standards on navigation and communication systems, in industry, in new technology and on fundamental research.

Product Description:

This book reviews conventional atomic frequency standards as described in the previous two volumes. It describes the development that has been done since the 1990s in improving conventional frequency standards. It covers the research and development done in the optical range to implement an optical frequency standard. It is designed for those groups and companies working in the areas of high-speed communications and data networks, navigation systems, satellites, GPS, timekeeping, and more.

Book Description Taylor Francis Inc, United States, 2015. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 235 x 156 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Up-to-Date Coverage of Stable and Accurate Frequency Standards The Quantum Physics of Atomic Frequency Standards: Recent Developments covers advances in atomic frequency standards (atomic clocks) from the last several decades. It explains the use of various techniques, such as laser optical pumping, coherent population trapping, laser cooling, and electromagnetic and optical trapping, in the implementation of classical microwave and optical atomic frequency standards. The book first discusses improvements to conventional atomic frequency standards, highlighting the main limitations of those frequency standards and the physical basis of the limitations. It then describes how advances in the theory and applications of atomic physics have opened new avenues in frequency standards. The authors go on to explore the research and development of new microwave and optical frequency standards before presenting the results in frequency stability and accuracy achieved with these new frequency standards. They also illustrate the application of atomic clocks in metrology, telecommunications, navigation, and other areas and give some insight into future work. Building on the success of the previous two volumes, this up-to-date, in-depth book examines the vast improvements to atomic clocks that have occurred in the last 25 years. The improved stability and accuracy enable the verification of physical concepts used in fundamental theories, such as relativity, as well as the stability of fundamental constants intrinsic to those theories.
