The Theory of Electrons and its Applications to the Phenomena of Light
by H. A. Lorentz
Publisher: B.G. Teubner 1916
Number of pages: 352
Based on a famous course of lectures delivered at Columbia University by Nobel laureate H. A. Lorentz, this volume remains remarkably modern. Its outstanding discussion of general principles and experimental facts keep it vital, and 109 pages of notes offer detailed examinations of the mathematics involved. Unabridged reproduction of the 1915 edition. 9 Figures.

Optics and interferometry with matter waves is the art of coherently manipulating the translational motion of particles like atoms. Coherent atom optics is an extension of techniques that were developed for manipulating internal quantum states.

A broad overview of the basic physical processes that govern the interaction between the light and semiconductor. The text shows the richness of the topic and shows the thread connecting the original research of the sixties and today's literature.

What the heck is a photon, anyway? You need to understand Maxwell's equations and quantum mechanics, and to understand how they fit together. This text won't teach you quantum electrodynamics. But they'll give you a nudge in the right direction.
