book light matterLight-matter interaction includes theoretical and experimental research in atom-light interactions. The aim of the book is to give the student advanced knowledge on the quantum-mechanical interaction between light and matter. The book covers the basics of atoms and molecules in electromagnetic fields and nonlinear optics. More specifically, starting from the Bloch equations, a detailed discussion of free induction decay, optical nutation y photon echoes is presented. Absorption and coherent amplication, solitons, spontaneous emission and superradiance are also discussed. The book is writen in Spanish.
