By: Meystre, Pierre.
Contributor(s): Sargent, Murray.
Publisher: Berlin ; New York : Springer, c2007Edition: 4th ed.Description: 1 online resource (xii, 507 p.) : ill.ISBN: 3540742093 (cloth); 9783540742098 (cloth); 9786611355296; 6611355294.Subject(s): Quantum opticsAdditional physical formats: Print version:: Elements of quantum optics.DDC classification: 535/.15 22 Online resources: MyiLibrary | University of Alberta Access Review: "Elements of Quantum Optics gives a self-contained and broad coverage of the basic elements necessary to understand and carry out research in laser physics and quantum optics, including a review of basic quantum mechanics and pedagogical introductions to system-reservoir interactions and to second quantization. The text reveals the close connection between many seemingly unrelated topics, such as probe absorption, four-wave mixing, optical instabilities, resonance fluorescence and squeezing. It also comprises discussions of cavity quantum electrodynamics and atom optics. The 4th edition includes a new chapter on quantum entanglement and quantum information, as well as added discussions of the quantum beam splitter, electromagnetically induced transparency, slow light, and the input-output formalism needed to understand many problems in quantum optics. It also provides an expanded treatment of the minimum-coupling Hamiltonian and a simple derivation of the Gross-Pitaevskii equation, and important gateway to research in ultracold atoms and molecules."--BOOK JACKET.
