Atomic and Molecular Spectroscopy is a wide-ranging review of modern spectroscopic techniques such as X-ray, photoelectron, optical and laser spectroscopy, and radiofrequency and microwave techniques. On the fundamental side it focuses on physical principles and the impact of spectroscopy on our understanding of the building blocks of matter, while in the area of applications particular attention is given to those in chemical analysis, photochemistry, surface characterisation, environmental and medical diagnostics, remote sensing and astrophyscis. The Fourth Edition also provides the reader with an update on laser cooling and trapping, Bose-Einstein condensation, ultra-fast spectroscopy, high-power laser/matter interaction, satellite-based astronomy and spectroscopic aspects of laser medicine. Important references are also brought up to date.

Industry Reviews

From the reviews of the fourth edition:

"The strength of Svanberg's book is in its focus on practical spectroscopy, preferring to illustrate a catalogue of techniques by showcasing real experiments from the literature with detailed descriptions of each backed by appropriate figures and providing the reader with a wealth of references ... to key papers rather than concentrating on heavy mathematical detail. ... continues to be one of a small number of leading texts on the illustration on the practice of A & M spectroscopy." (Dr. J.T. Costello, Contemporary Physics, Vol. 46 (1), 2005)
