Do I have any reader left?
After abandoning my blog for around a year and a half I felt the need to share something, but I was not sure what. In the last year and a half I discover such beautiful physics and math, but I was not sure what I wanted to share. Some months ago I finished my bachelor in Physics, so I decided to share one of the main reasons that convinced me to study this or, better said, one of the main problems: Here I present you:
Laser cooling of atoms
This one I wanted to do for a while. I like very much the math that can be derived from the Quantum Harmonic Oscillator, but there’s also a lot of stuff that I personally don’t like about the approach that is taken in some quantum physics books. I prefer a rather algebraic analysis of this system since I think that it is pretty much cleaner and easier to justify; then again I’m not pretending to be absolutely formal, just enough for it not to look like some kind of magic trick in the middle of the thing.
