Light-Matter Interactions and Quantum Optics
by Jonathan Keeling
Publisher: University of St. Andrews 2012
Number of pages: 131
The aims of this course are: to discuss how to model the quantum behaviour of coupled light and matter; to introduce some simple models that can be used to describe such systems; to discuss methods for open quantum systems that arise naturally in the context of coupled light and matter; and to discuss some of the more interesting phenomena which may arise for matter coupled to light.
