Atomic Molecular and Optical Physics


It was the study of atoms that led to the development of quantum mechanics and the birth of modern physics in the first half of this century and atomic physics continues to be a fertile field for unrevealing the elementary laws of nature. Our current research efforts in the Department of Physics at Auburn University seek a better understanding of the fundamental quantal dynamics of atoms and molecules when they interact with photons, electrons, and atomic ions.
