Optical Properties of Solids
by Frederick Wooten
Publisher: Academic Press 1972
Number of pages: 260
The present book attempts to fill a need for a fundamental textbook which explains the optical properties of solids. It is meant to explain a number of important concepts rather than present a complete survey of experimental data.

Optics and interferometry with matter waves is the art of coherently manipulating the translational motion of particles like atoms. Coherent atom optics is an extension of techniques that were developed for manipulating internal quantum states.

This paper reviews the history and the state of the art in optical-clock research and addresses the implementation of optical clocks in a possible future redefinition of the SI second as well as in tests of fundamental physics.

Based on a course of lectures delivered at Columbia University by Nobel laureate H. A. Lorentz, this texte remains remarkably modern. Its outstanding discussion of general principles and experimental facts keep it vital.
