Ultrafast nonlinear methods involve sequences of light pulses. Skip to main content. He has taught graduate quantum mechanics at Stanford for over thirty years. Customers who viewed this item also viewed. In the early s, Fayer realized that a mechanicd leap could be taken if the experiments could be extended to the infrared regions of the optical spectrum.
Fayer drove the field of ultrafast optical spectroscopy through his developments and use of these new methods to explicate the properties of complex molecular systems.
Kets and Bras B. Fayer’s accessible approach presents balanced coverage of various quantum theory formalisms, such as the Schr: There was a problem filtering reviews right now.

Elemfnts are many versions of this type of experiment that Fayer developed and applied to understanding molecular materials. Fayer pioneered and launched a fundamental transformation of how the dynamics and dynamical interactions of complex molecular systems are investigated. By the early s, just as Fayer was beginning his career, advances in laser technology were occurring to make pulses of light that were short enough to get to the time scales of molecular motions.
The book is expensive and vastly inferior to Griffiths, McQuarrie, etc. Fayer began his academic career at Stanford as an Michael D.

Fayer provides many examples and problems with fully detailed analytical solutions. Amazon Drive Cloud storage from Amazon. The multiple experimental approaches he initiated have forever changed the manner in which chemists, biologist, molecular physicists, and materials scientist interrogate key aspects of nature.
Very readable, definitely a great book for chemists and engineers since it doesn’t assume a strong background in physics. I am a retired engineering manager who favors studying theoretical physics over meechanics. Ships from and sold by Amazon. These first experiments mechaniccs the free electron laser, which was two football fields long and took a crew to run, set off an explosion of interest in infrared nonlinear methods.
