Optical interactions in solids, 2d ed.


Optical interactions in solids, 2d ed.

Di Bartolo, Baldassare.

World Scientific


612 pages




Experienced in the absorption and emission spectroscopy of solids, Di Bartolo (Boston College, US) explains the basic mathematical tools and physics involved in such research. The book could serve as a textbook for a two-term graduate course in solid-state spectroscopy for students with at least a year of quantum mechanics, but not necessarily any knowledge of group theory. His topics include the connection of quantum mechanics with group theory, the magnetic ion in a crystal, the quantum theory of the radiation field, the ion-photon interaction, fluorescence spectra of magnetic ions in crystals, and elements of laser theory.
