Instructor: Wolfgang Ketterle

This is the second of a two-semester subject sequence beginning with Atomic and Optical Physics I (8.421) that provides the foundations for contemporary research in selected areas of atomic and optical physics. Topics covered include non-classical states of light--squeezed states; multi-photon processes, Raman scattering; coherence--level crossings, quantum beats, double resonance, superradiance; trapping and cooling-light forces, laser cooling, atom optics, spectroscopy of trapped atoms and ions; atomic interactions--classical collisions, quantum scattering theory, ultracold collisions; and experimental methods.

The collection includes twenty one full lectures recorded in 27 videos.
