About this book


"Atomic and Molecular Beams" reviews the state of the art in this field both theoretically and experimentally, while simultaneously investigating the many possible applications. The topics covered include among others:
- laser cooling and manipulation of atoms and molecules
- alignment, relaxation and condensation in supersonic jets
- spectroscopy, state imaging and photodissociation in molecular beams
- elementary molecular collisions and reaction dynamics
production and properties of clusters and nanoparticles
- beam interactions with surfaces.
With many contributions from leading researchers, including several Nobel Prize laureates, this volume will serve as a long-lasting source of reference on all aspects of fundamental research into or using atomic and molecular beams.
