Description

"An Isolated Atomic Particle at Rest in Free Space" features recent ground breaking research inspired by the work of Physics Nobel Laureate Hans Dehmelt. This monograph not only honours a great individual but presents a snapshot of current frontiers of physics. Experts describes: magnetic resonance imaging of patients' lungs; keeping time with the best clock known - a single atomic ion; measuring and calculating the magnetism of a single electron to parts per trillion accuracy; weighing the energy of a chemical bond; and creating clouds of anti - atoms in the laboratory and much more. Also includes Nobel Laureate (2005) Professor John L Hall's chapter on Optical Frequency Standards and their Measurement
