**Optical Atomic Clocks**

by **N. Poli, C. W. Oates, P. Gill, G. M. Tino** - **arXiv** , **2014**

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.

**Photons, Schmotons**

by **John Baez, Michael Weiss** - **University of California** , **2002**

What the heck is a photon, anyway? You need to understand Maxwell's equations and quantum mechanics, and to understand how they fit together. This text won't teach you quantum electrodynamics. But they'll give you a nudge in the right direction.

**Introduction to Ab Initio Molecular Dynamics**

by **Juerg Hutter** - **University of Zurich** , **2002**

The aim of molecular dynamics is to model the detailed microscopic dynamical behavior of many different types of systems. Molecular dynamics is a technique to investigate equilibrium and transport properties of manyâ€“body systems.

**Optical Properties of Semiconductors**

by **Jerome Faist** - **Eidgenossische Technische Hochshule Zurich** , **2008**

A broad overview of the basic physical processes that govern the interaction between the light and semiconductor. The text shows the richness of the topic and shows the thread connecting the original research of the sixties and today's literature.

**Optical Properties of Solids**

by **Frederick Wooten** - **Academic Press** , **1972**

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.

**Optical Physics and Quantum Electronics**

by **R. Victor Jones** - **Harvard University** , **2000**

Theoretical background needed to understand developments in optical research and photonic technology. Topics presented include wave propagation in anisotropic media; interaction of light with matter; quantization of the radiation field; etc.

**The Theory of Electrons and its Applications to the Phenomena of Light**

by **H. A. Lorentz** - **B.G. Teubner** , **1916**

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.
