The theories and discoveries of thousands of physicists since the 1930s have resulted in a remarkable insight into the fundamental structure of matter: everything in the universe is found to be made from a few basic building blocks called fundamental particles, governed by four fundamental forces. Atomic, molecular, and optical physics the mit amo group is anchored by the nsf center for ultracold atoms (cua), a joint effort between mit and harvard their research focuses on creating and understanding quantum systems with strong interactions and correlations.

The book describes the basics of atomic and nuclear physics, related phenomena, and the physics of nuclear reactors and the instruments and applications for the samethe flow of the chapters in the book gradually moves from atomic physics, then to quantum physics, and finally to nuclear physics.
Excitation: excitation, in physics, the addition of a discrete amount of energy (called excitation energy) to a system—such as an atomic nucleus, an atom, or a molecule—that results in its alteration, ordinarily from the condition of lowest energy (ground state) to one of higher energy (excited state) in. Electron and photon form a system on atomic orbit authors: tspiegelman comments: 8 pages by assuming that maxwell’s displacement current is resulted from the spin of photon, electron can be considered as the relative and electromagnetic eﬀect from rotating spin of photon.
