**University of California**

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.

**Interferometry with Atoms**

by

**J.-F. Schaff, T. Langen, J. Schmiedmayer**-

**arXiv**

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.
