The semi-classical approach is ubiquitous in computational work within AMO, largely due to the large decrease in computational cost and complexity associated with it. For matter under the action of a laser, a fully quantum mechanical treatment of the atomic or molecular system is combined with the system being under the action of a classical electromagnetic field.

In low speed collisions the approximation fails. Atomic models will consist of a single nucleus that may be surrounded by one or more bound electrons, whilst molecular models are typically concerned with molecular hydrogen and its molecular hydrogen ion. It is concerned with processes such as ionization , above threshold ionization and excitation by photons or collisions with atomic particles.

While modelling atoms in isolation may not seem realistic, if one considers molecules in a gas or plasma then the time-scales for molecule-molecule interactions are huge in comparison to the atomic and molecular processes that we are concerned with. This means that the individual molecules can be treated as if each were in isolation for the vast majority of the time. By this consideration atomic and molecular physics provides the underlying theory in plasma physics and atmospheric physics even though both deal with huge numbers of molecules.

Electronic configuration[ edit ] Electrons form notional shells around the nucleus.

These are naturally in a ground state but can be excited by the absorption of energy from light photons , magnetic fields, or interaction with a colliding particle typically other electrons. Electrons that populate a shell are said to be in a bound state. The energy necessary to remove an electron from its shell taking it to infinity is called the binding energy.

Any quantity of energy absorbed by the electron in excess of this amount is converted to kinetic energy according to the conservation of energy. The atom is said to have undergone the process of ionization.

Optical Physics

In the event that the electron absorbs a quantity of energy less than the binding energy, it may transition to an excited state or to a virtual state.Strayer -- 9. Your trial makes buried the free emphasis19,26 of experiences.
