Optically Pumped Atoms
To make most effective use of contemporary mathematical software, it is especially useful to analyze optical pumping situations in the Liouville space of density matrices rather than in the traditional Hilbert space of wave functions. This unique approach allows modelling under most experimental conditions, e.g.
- magnetic resonance with one or more oscillating magnetic fields,
- coherent population trapping or CPG resonances induce by modulated light,
- magneto-optic forces on multilevel atoms,
- various spin-relaxation processes etc.
The reader of this book should have a basic understanding of quantum mechanics, atomic physics, optics and magnetic resonance. Some familiarity with MATLAB would be helpful to a reader interested in writing specialized programs based on the illustrative codes to analyze specialized optical-pumping phenomena.

Yuan-Yu Jau obtained his Ph.D from Princeton University and continued to work with Professor Happer as a research associate and the Instructor in Physics. Dr. Jau is especially interested in AMO physics with specialty of atomic vapor-cell experiments and computer simulations of optically-pumped atomic systems.
