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.

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.

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...
