Atom-photon interactions
This book of the physical phenomena resulting from the interactions between atoms and photons brings together and discusses different theoretical approaches which have up to now been dispersed in

Introduction to Quantum Optics: From the Semi-classical Approach to Quantized Light
Part I. Semi-Classical Description of Matter-Light Interaction: 1. The evolution of interacting quantum systems 2. The semi-classical approach: atoms interacting with a classical electromagnetic
Phase control of directed diffusion in a symmetric optical lattice.
It is demonstrated that cold atoms in a one-dimensional dissipative optical lattice are set into directed motion as a result of the breaking of the temporal symmetry of the system.
Proposal for a Magneto-Optical Lattice for Trapping Atoms in Nearly-Dark States
We present a new type of lattice for trapping cold atoms in nearly-dark states where they weakly interact with light. The periodic potential is obtained with fields in a lin ⊥ lin configuration tuned
