Authors: Orszag, MiguelIncluding Noise Reduction, Trapped Ions, Quantum Trajectories, and DecoherenceContains new sections on trapped ions, on quantum computing, quantum bits, quantum processing and entanglement, all presented with applications Offers a balance between theoretical aspects of the optical phenomena and relevant experimentsTeaches clearly and succinctly how to solve problems in quantum opticsThis 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.Number of Illustrations and Tables90 b/w illustrations, 3 illustrations in colourTopicsQuantum Optics, Quantum Electronics, Nonlinear OpticsLaser Technology and Physics, PhotonicsClick Here to Buy the Hardcover from SpringerPurchase a Premium account from Download Link for Multiple/High Speed And Support :)Click Here for More books
In this second edition, there is an enlarged chapter on decoherence, as well as additional material dealing with elements of quantum computation, entanglement of pure and mixed states as well as a chapter on quantum copying and processors.
