About this Textbook

This book covers the fundamental properties and the description of single photons and light beams, experimentally and theoretically. It explains the essentials of linear interactions and most nonlinear interactions between light and matter in both the transparent and absorbing cases. It also provides a basic understanding of modern quantum optics and lasers, as well as the principles of nonlinear optical spectroscopy. It is self-consistent and enriched by a large number of calculated illustrations, examples, and descriptive tables. Graduate students in physics and electrical engineering, as well as other sciences, will find this book a thorough introduction to the field, while for lecturers and scientists it is a rich source of useful information and a ready-to-hand reference. The new edition has been thoroughly expanded and revised in all sections

Reviews

From the reviews of the second edition:

"Menzel covers a narrower subject area in greater depth. We are treated to a comprehensive discussion of linear and nonlinear interactions between light and matter with more of the mathematics than some others offer. … the bibliography that extends over four hundred pages with 67 books for further reading, and more than 6000 references! This is a very nice book for specialists at the post-graduate level and beyond." (Barry Luther-Davis, Australian Physics, Vol. 45 (1), 2008)
