**Quantum Optics and Nonlinear Optics**

by Karl-Peter Marzlin

**Publisher**: University of Calgary 2007**Number of pages**: 209

**Description**:

These notes cover the fundamentals of quantum and nonlinear optics. The foundations of quantum optics include quantization of the electromagnetic field and many-particle theories, interaction between atoms and photons, few-level models for atoms, open quantum systems and density matrix, and electromagnetically induced transparency.
