Introduction to quantum optics : from light quanta to quantum teleportation

Author: Harry Paul
Publisher: Cambridge, UK ; New York : Cambridge University Press, 2004.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
This textbook provides a physical understanding of what photons are and of their properties and applications. Special emphasis is made in the text to entangled photon pairs which exhibit quantum mechanical correlations over manifestly macroscopic distances. Such photon pairs make possible such exciting techniques as teleportation and quantum cryptography.
