in Quantum Optics

Published in print:
2008
Published Online:
September 2008
ISBN:
9780198508861
eISBN:

Subject:
Physics, Atomic, Laser, and Optical Physics

This chapter shows that the interaction of photons with a passive, linear device can be described by the scattering matrix of classical optics. Combining this with the paraxial approximation leads to ... More

Subject:
Physics, Atomic, Laser, and Optical Physics

Everyday objects display an almost incredible variety of properties that may be felt with animal senses and that human intellect wishes to apprehend, categorise, understand, and — possibly — predict. ... More

Subject:
Physics, Atomic, Laser, and Optical Physics

This chapter discusses an approximate approach—transition-state theory—to the calculation of rate constants for bimolecular reactions. A reaction coordinate is identified from a normal-mode ... More
