Quantum Optics: an Introduction
by Maciej Lewenstein, Anna Sanpera, Matthias Pospiech
Number of pages: 90
Quantum Optics is an area of atomic, molecular and optical physics that deals with lasers, i. e. sources of coherent electromagnetic radiation. It is one of the areas of physics that influence our every day's life particularly profoundly.
