An Introduction to Quantum Optics: An open systems approach (Iop Expanding Physics) (Hardcover)
This book provides a solid pedagogical background in the techniques used in quantum optics, with an emphasis on open quantum systems. Suitable for undergraduates as a second semester quantum mechanics course or first-year graduate students, this book begins with a short summary of quantum mechanics and contains physics of open systems and their application to light/matter interactions. Written in a simplified manner and classroom tested, this book provides the fundamentals of quantum optics and includes recent developments in the field.
- Solid introduction to the key features of the field
- Excellent first exposure to nonequilibrium quantum statistical mechanics
- Developed from 30 years of teaching
- Includes recent developments in the field
