  1. atomic physics

    Atomic physics is a branch of physics that deals with the composition, structure, behavior, and interactions of atoms as well as the phenomena that arise due to their properties. This includes the study of electrons and the electromagnetic forces that act upon them, the quantum mechanical models that represent their behaviors, and the energy states that each atom can occupy.

  1. Atomic physics

    Atomic physics is the field of physics that studies atoms as an isolated system of electrons and an atomic nucleus. It is primarily concerned with the arrangement of electrons around the nucleus and the processes by which these arrangements change. This includes ions as well as neutral atoms and, unless otherwise stated, for the purposes of this discussion it should be assumed that the term atom includes ions. The term atomic physics is often associated with nuclear power and nuclear bombs, due to the synonymous use of atomic and nuclear in standard English. However, physicists distinguish between atomic physics — which deals with the atom as a system consisting of a nucleus and electrons — and nuclear physics, which considers atomic nuclei alone. As with many scientific fields, strict delineation can be highly contrived and atomic physics is often considered in the wider context of atomic, molecular, and optical physics. Physics research groups are usually so classified.
