Published on the occasion of Theodor Hansch's 60th Birthday emphasis is placed on precision related to results in a variety of fields, such as atomic clocks, frequency standards, and the measurement of physical constants in atomic physics. Furthermore, illustrations and engineering applications of the fundamentals of quantum mechanics are widely covered. It has contributions by Nobel prize winners Norman F. Ramsey, Steven Chu, and Carl E. Wieman.

"This fascinating and detailed volume elucidates the developments that have pushed, and continue to push, the limits of precision. Springer has a volume worthy of inclusion in the library of any university offering a laser physics or laser applications course or researching in the area."
John Holdsworth, School of Mathematical & Physical Sciences, University of Newcastle (The Physicist, Australian Institute of Physics, Vol. 39, 2002)
"This volume will prove useful for many years to come and, equally important, it will survive extensive use during these years. Thus it is highly recommended for those who want an in-depth introduction to laser physics."
Gary J. Long, Fernande Grandjean (Physicalia, Vol. XXXVII, 2002)
