Title  HighEnergy Atomic Physics 
Author(s)  Drukarev, Evgeny G;Mikhailov, A.I 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XIII, 384 p. 55 illus., 5 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This selfcontained text introduces readers to the field of highenergy atomic physics  a new regime of photonatom interactions in which the photon energies significantly exceed the atomic or molecular binding energies, and which opened up with the recent advent of new synchrotron sources. From a theoretical point of view, a smallparameter characteristic of the bound system emerged, making it possible to perform analytic perturbative calculations that can in turn serve as benchmarks for more powerful numerical computations. The first part of the book introduces readers to the foundations of this new regime and its theoretical treatment. In particular, the validity of the smallparameter perturbation expansion and of the lowestorder approximation is critically reviewed. The following chapters then apply these insights to various atomic processes, such as photoionization as a manybody problem, dominant mechanisms for the production of ions at higher energies, Compton scattering and ionization accompanied by creation of ee+ pairs, and the photoionization of endohedral atoms (e.g. fullerene). Last but not least, the computationally challenging transitions in the electron shell during certain types of nuclear decays are investigated in detail

Title  Quantum Theory and Statistical Thermodynamics : Principles and Worked Examples 
Author(s)  Hertel, Peter 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XIV, 368 p. 27 illus., 17 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This textbook presents a concise yet detailed introduction to quantum physics. Concise, because it condenses the essentials to a few principles. Detailed, because these few principles ??? necessarily rather abstract ??? are illustrated by several telling examples. A fairly complete overview of the conventional quantum mechanics curriculum is the primary focus, but the huge field of statistical thermodynamics is covered as well. The text explains why a few key discoveries shattered the prevailing broadly accepted classical view of physics. First, matter appears to consist of particles which, when propagating, resemble waves. Consequently, some observable properties cannot be measured simultaneously with arbitrary precision. Second, events with single particles are not determined, but are more or less probable. The essence of this is that the observable properties of a physical system are to be represented by noncommuting mathematical objects instead of real numbers. Chapters on exceptionally simple, but highly instructive examples illustrate this abstract formulation of quantum physics. The simplest atoms, ions, and molecules are explained, describing their interaction with electromagnetic radiation as well as the scattering of particles. A short introduction to many particle physics with an outlook on quantum fields follows. There is a chapter on maximally mixed states of very large systems, that is statistical thermodynamics. The following chapter on the linear response to perturbations provides a link to the material equations of continuum physics. Mathematical details which would hinder the flow of the main text have been deferred to an appendix. The book addresses university students of physics and related fields. It will attract graduate students and professionals in particular who wish to systematize or refresh their knowledge of quantum physics when studying specialized texts on solid state and materials physics, advanced optics, and other modern fields

Title  Bohmian Mechanics, Open Quantum Systems and Continuous Measurements 
Author(s)  Nassar, Antonio B;MiretArt??s, Salvador 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XVII, 241 p. 19 illus., 12 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book shows how Bohmian mechanics overcomes the need for a measurement postulate involving wave function collapse.????The measuring process plays a very important role in quantum mechanics. It has been??widely analyzed within??the Copenhagen approach through the Born and von Neumann postulates, with later extension due to L??ders.??In contrast, much less effort has been??invested in the measurement theory within the Bohmian mechanics framework. The continuous measurement (sharp and fuzzy, or strong and weak) problem is considered here??in this framework. The authors begin??by??generalizing the socalled Mensky approach, which is based on restricted path integral through quantum corridors. The measuring system is then considered to be an open quantum system following a stochastic Schr??dinger equation. Quantum stochastic trajectories (in the Bohmian sense)??and their role in??basic quantum processes are discussed in detail. The decoherence process is thereby described in terms of classical trajectories issuing from the violation of the noncrossing rule of quantum trajectories

Title  A Controlled Phase Gate Between a Single Atom and an Optical Photon 
Author(s)  Reiserer, Andreas 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XIII, 72 p. 28 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis reports on major steps towards the realization of scalable quantum networks. It addresses the experimental implementation of a deterministic interaction mechanism between flying optical photons and a single trapped atom. In particular, it demonstrates the nondestructive detection of an optical photon. To this end, single rubidium atoms are trapped in a threedimensional optical lattice at the center of an optical cavity in the strong coupling regime. Full control over the atomic state ??? its position, its motion, and its electronic state ??? is achieved with laser beams applied along the resonator and from the side. When faint laser pulses are reflected from the resonator, the combined atomphoton state acquires a statedependent phase shift. In a first series of experiments, this is employed to nondestructively detect optical photons by measuring the atomic state after the reflection process. Then, quantum bits are encoded in the polarization of the laser pulse and in the Zeeman state of the atom. The statedependent phase shift mediates a deterministic universal quantum gate between the atom and one or two successively reflected photons, which is used to generate entangled atomphoton, atomphotonphoton, and photonphoton states out of separable input states

Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XV, 347 p. 60 illus., 27 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis sheds new light on the fascinating properties of composite quantum systems. Quantum systems of different sizes, ranging from small bipartite systems to large manybody ensembles, can be studied with the help of modern quantum optical experiments. These experiments make it possible to observe a broad variety of striking features, including nonclassical correlations, complex dynamics and quantum phase transitions. By adopting the complementary perspectives of quantum information theory, quantum chemistry and manybody theory, the thesis develops new methods for the efficient characterization and description of interacting, composite quantum systems

Title  Spin and Charge Ordering in the Quantum Hall Regime 
Author(s)  Frie??, Benedikt 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XV, 129 p. 62 illus., 61 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  The book presents a comprehensive yet concise introduction to the physics of twodimensional electron systems in the quantum Hall regime, as well as an uptodate overview of the current fields of research concerning the integer and fractional quantum Hall effect. The physics of twodimensional electron systems at low temperatures and high magnetic fields are governed by the formation of discrete energy levels referred to as Landau levels. These narrow energy bands not only form the basis of the wellknown quantum Hall effect but also promote strong interactions between the electrons, giving rise to some of the finest manifestations of manybody physics in solid state science. Examples include skyrmionic spin textures, ferromagnetic spin transitions, stripe and bubble phases, as well as fractional quantum Hall states with potential nonabelian exchange statistics. The thesis succeeds in profoundly deepening our understanding of these exotic states of matter, with a main focus on the densitymodulated phases in the quantum Hall regime. These phases arise from the interplay of competing interactions and are characterized by a selforganized ordering of electrons in spatial patterns. Similar phases of matter are currently being studied in other material systems as well, most notably in hightemperature superconductors. The thesis stands out not only in terms of its contribution to improving readers??? grasp of physics, but also in the diversity and novelty of the measurement techniques employed, which take advantage of the interaction between the electrons and the surrounding crystal lattice
