**Photonic Crystals**

by

**Alireza Bananej (ed.)**-

**InTech**,

**2015**

In photonic circuits photons play the dominant role and they transfer the optical data. With the growth of technology, a new area started to grow as photonic crystals which now play an important role in designing and manufacturing compact devices ...

**Interferometry with Atoms**

by

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

**arXiv**,

**2015**

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.

**Optical Atomic Clocks**

by

**N. Poli, C. W. Oates, P. Gill, G. M. Tino**-

**arXiv**,

**2014**

This paper reviews the history and the state of the art in optical-clock research and addresses the implementation of optical clocks in a possible future redefinition of the SI second as well as in tests of fundamental physics.

**Photons, Schmotons**

by

**John Baez, Michael Weiss**-

**University of California**,

**2002**

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.

**Optical Properties of Solids**

by

**Frederick Wooten**-

**Academic Press**,

**1972**

The present book attempts to fill a need for a fundamental textbook which explains the optical properties of solids. It is meant to explain a number of important concepts rather than present a complete survey of experimental data.
