Elements of Quantum Optics

Pierre Meystre


With a brand new bankruptcy on quantum entanglement and quantum info, in addition to additional discussions of the quantum beam splitter, electromagnetically brought on transparency, gradual gentle and the input-output formalism, this fourth variation of the intense paintings on quantum optics has been a lot up to date. It nonetheless supplies a self-contained and large insurance of the fundamental parts essential to comprehend and perform learn in laser physics and quantum optics, together with a overview of uncomplicated quantum mechanics and pedagogical introductions to system-reservoir interactions and to moment quantization. The textual content unearths the shut connection among many likely unrelated issues, resembling probe absorption, four-wave blending, optical instabilities, resonance fluorescence and squeezing.
