Atomic Physics provides a concise treatment of atomic physics and a basis to prepare for work in other disciplines that are underpinned by atomic physics such as chemistry, biology and several aspects of engineering science. The focus is mainly on atomic structure since this is what is primarily responsible for the physical properties of atoms.

Paul Ewart obtained a BSc and PhD in Physics from Queen's University Belfast and then was an (SERC) Advanced Fellow at the Blackett Laboratory, Imperial College of Science and Technology in London. His research work has centred on using lasers to study atomic and molecular physics, quantum optics and nonlinear spectroscopy. Current research includes interdisciplinary applications of laser spectroscopy to combustion and environmental physics. He was Professor of Physics and formerly Head of the department of Atomic and Laser Physics at Oxford University.
