  • This paper reviews the basic theory of the mechanical action of light in resonant interaction with atoms. At present the main application is laser cooling, but the approach is applicable to a broader range of phenomena. It is based on an adiabatic elimination philosophy, which turns out to give the lowest-order quantum corrections to the behavior found when the photon momentum goes to zero. Hence it is called a semiclassical theory. In this manner a subjective but consistent approach can be… CONTINUE READING
