28 episodes

This is the second of a two-semester subject sequence beginning with
Atomic and Optical Physics I (8.421) that provides the foundations for
contemporary research in selected areas of atomic and optical physics.
Topics covered include non-classical states of light–squeezed states;
multi-photon processes, Raman scattering; coherence–level crossings,
quantum beats, double resonance, superradiance; trapping and
cooling-light forces, laser cooling, atom optics, spectroscopy of
trapped atoms and ions; atomic interactions–classical collisions,
quantum scattering theory, ultracold collisions; and experimental
methods.

The collection includes twenty one full lectures recorded in 27 videos.
