This book provides an elementary introduction to the subject of quantum optics, the study of the quantum mechanical nature of light and its interaction with matter. The presentation is almost entirely concerned with the quantized electromagnetic field. Topics covered include single-mode field quantization in a cavity, quantization of multimode fields, quantum phase, coherent states, quasi. This book covers the following topics: Constructing Quantum Field Theory, symmetries and Conservation Laws, non-Relativistic Quantum Mechanics, Interacting Fields, Perturbation Theory for nonrelativistic quantum mechanics, Decay Widths, Cross Sections and Phase Space, Quantizing the Dirac Lagrangian, vector Fields and Quantum Electrodynamics.

The book may serve as a reference work in the field, and is of general interest for physicists working in quantum optics, mesoscopic electrodynamics and physical optics. The macroscopic and microscopic classical theories form a good starting point for the quantum approach, and these theories are presented in a manner appropriate for graduate. This book is addressed to readers who are familiar with quantum mechanics and classical electrodynamics at the level of university courses. Show less. Quantum Electrodynamics focuses on the formulation of quantum electrodynamics (QED) in its most general and most abstract form: relativistic quantum field theory. It describes QED as a program.

QED: The Strange Theory of Light and Matter is an adaptation for the general reader of four lectures on quantum electrodynamics (QED) published in by American physicist and Nobel laureate Richard Feynman.

QED was designed to be a popular science book, written in a witty style, Author: Richard Feynman. Quantum Theory of Light, by Rodney Loudon. This is your readable one. It really covers a lot of stuff, including noise (including relative intensity noise), amplitude correlation functions, intensity correlation, quantization of the Maxwell fields, nonlinear optics an higher-order correlations, and more.

Salam, in Advances in Quantum Chemistry, 1 Introduction. A notable success of the theory of quantum electrodynamics (QED) [1] was the calculation of the retarded van der Waals dispersion force between a pair of neutral nonpolar bodies in their ground electronic states [2].Instead of the usual inverse sixth power law behavior of the energy shift on interparticle separation distance, R.

Researchers, scientists, and students of modern physics can refer to Cavity Quantum Electrodynamics and examine the field thoroughly. Several key topics covered that readers cannot find in any other quantum optics book include: * Introduction to the problem of the "vacuum catastrophe" and the cosmological constant.

The book by Dr. Agarwal is an excellent complement to the library of classic quantum optics books to bridge this gap.
