About this Textbook

This new edition gives a unique and broad coverage of basic laser-related phenomena that allow graduate students, scientists and engineers to carry out research in quantum optics and laser physics. It covers quantization of the electromagnetic field, quantum theory of coherence, atom-field interaction models, resonance fluorescence, quantum theory of damping, laser theory using both the master equation and the Langevin theory, the correlated emission laser, input-output theory with applications to non-linear optics, quantum trajectories, quantum non-demolition measurements and generation of non-classical vibrational states of ions in a Paul trap. In this third edition, there is an enlarged chapter on trapped ions, as well as new sections on quantum computing and quantum bits with applications. There is also additional material included for quantum processing and entanglement. These topics are presented in a unified and didactic manner, each chapter is accompanied by specific problems and hints to solutions to deepen the knowledge.

Reviews

“The third edition of this book contains extensive and thorough coverage of basic laser-related phenomena including quantization of the electromagnetic field, quantum theory of coherence, laser theory using both the master equation and the Langevin theory, and generation of non-classical vibrational states of ions in a Paul trap. … it will be of interest to a great variety of readers, including graduate students, scientists and engineers. … It is a valuable addition to textbook literature in quantum optics.” (Christian Brosseau, Optics & Photonics News, osa-opn-org, March, 2017)
