Optics and interferometry with matter waves is the art of coherently manipulating the translational motion of particles like neutrons, atoms and molecules. Coherent atom optics is an extension of techniques that were developed for manipulating internal quantum states.

What the heck is a photon, anyway? You need to understand Maxwell's equations and quantum mechanics, and to understand how they fit together. This text won't teach you quantum electrodynamics. But they'll give you a nudge in the right direction.

Theoretical background needed to understand developments in optical research and photonic technology. Topics presented include wave propagation in anisotropic media; interaction of light with matter; quantization of the radiation field; etc.

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.
