The objective of the course is to bring the basic knowledge for understanding the structure and properties of isolated atoms and molecules and their interaction with electromagnetic radiation treated classically.

The topics covered include:

The Atom and Molecular Physics course is given by Jean-Hugues Fillion and Thomas Coudreau.

Thomas Coudreau is professor of Physics at Université de Paris. He is a member of the Quantum Information and Technologies group of laboratoire Matériaux et Phénomènes Quantiques (CNRS and Université de Paris). His research deals with theoretical aspects of quantum information and quantum optics. Recent deals with the generation of non classical states of light using semiconductor or superconducting devices and the study of continuous variables quantum computing.
