About this book

Quantum Theory of Near-field Electrodynamics gives a self-contained account of the fundamental theory of field-matter interaction on a subwavelength scale. The quantum physical behavior of matter (atoms and mesoscopic media) in both classical and quantum fields is treated. The role of local-field effects and nonlocal electrodynamics, and the tight links to the theory of spatial photon localization are emphasized. The book may serve as a reference work in the field, and is of general interest for physicists working in quantum optics, mesoscopic electrodynamics and physical optics. The macroscopic and microscopic classical theories form a good starting point for the quantum approach, and these theories are presented in a manner appropriate for graduate students entering near-field optics.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This is a substantial monograph focused on the interaction of classical, semi-classical, and quantized electromagnetic waves with matter in the subwavelength region … . The presentation of the entire material is very detailed, and may be accessible to graduate students.” (Boris A. Malomed, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1243, 2012)
