Light-Matter Interaction: Physics and Engineering at the Nanoscale, Second Edition

John Weiner and Frederico Nunes


Light–matter interaction is pervasive throughout the disciplines of optical and atomic physics, condensed matter physics, and electrical engineering with frequency and length scales extending over many orders of magnitude. The frequency range extends from a few tens of Hz for sea communications to hundreds of petaHz (1015 s–1) for X-ray imaging systems. Length scales range from thousands of kilometres to a few hundred picometres. Although the present work does not offer an exhaustive treatise on this vast subject, it does aim to provide advanced undergraduates, graduate students, and researche ... More

Keywords: light, optics, energy flow, light–matter interaction, momentum flow, metamaterials, atom-optical forces, cooling and trapping
