Optical Physics and Quantum Electronics
by R. Victor Jones
Publisher: Harvard University 2000
The course develops the theoretical background needed to understand developments in optical research and photonic technology. Topics presented include wave propagation in anisotropic media, glass fibers, planar dielectrics and random media; interaction of light with matter; quantization of the radiation field; laser physics; photon statistics and noise; nonlinear optics; optical modulation and switching; acousto-optics; parametric devices; optical solitons; photon migration.

The present book attempts to fill a need for a fundamental textbook which explains the optical properties of solids. It is meant to explain a number of important concepts rather than present a complete survey of experimental data.

This book moves from the quantum-statistical description to the validity of classical modeling; it presents some perspectives in the algorithmic and in the enhanced sampling approaches, tackling some longstanding challenges to simulation ...
