Lectures on light : nonlinear and quantum optics using the density matrix

Author: Stephen Colby Rand
Publisher: Oxford : Oxford University Press, 2016.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : English : Second editionView all editions and formats
Summary:
This book bridges a gap between introductory optics texts and the vanguard of optical science, where light is used as a tool to probe the properties of new materials. A single mathematical tool is introduced that enables readers to understand laser tweezers, laser cooling, optical magnetism, squeezed light, and many other advanced topics.
