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.

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...

The definitive text for both students and researchers on photonic band-gap materials and their use in controlling the propagation of light. It covers the latest developments, providing the most comprehensive book available on these novel materials.
by Andrzej Jamiolkowski (ed.) - InTech
The book presents some aspects of modern theory of open quantum systems. It introduces several topics, such as modeling of quantum noise, quantum communication processes, and computational complexity in the analysis of quantum operations.
