Description for The Quantum Theory of Light Paperback. Provides an introduction to quantum optics, the study of optical effects that cannot be explained by classical theory. The main concern of this book is the theoretical background to the key experiments in quantum optics. It is meant for postgraduate students and research workers, as well as final-year undergraduates. Num Pages: 448 pages, numerous line figures. BIC Classification: PHJ; PHM; PHQ. Category: (U) Tertiary Education (US: College). Dimension: 235 x 156 x 24. Weight in Grams: 652.
This third edition, like its two predecessors, provides a detailed account of the basic theory needed to understand the properties of light and its interactions with atoms, in particular the many nonclassical effects that have now been observed in quantum-optical experiments. The earlier chapters describe the quantum mechanics of various optical processes, leading from the classical representation of the electromagnetic field to the quantum theory of light. The later chapters develop the theoretical descriptions of some of the key experiments in quantum optics. Over half of the material in this third edition is new. It includes topics ... Read more
