About the book

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 • Creating clouds of anti - atoms in the laboratory and much more • Includes Nobel Laureate (2005) Professor John L Hall’s chapter on Optical Frequency Standards and their Measurement
