Quantum optics by J. C Garrison( Book )

29 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in English and Polish and held by 402 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This text develops the theoretical and experimental basis of quantum optics, i.e. the interaction of individual particles of light (photons) with matter, starting from elementary quantum theory. The self-contained exposition will be useful to graduate students in physics, engineering, chemistry, and senior undergraduates in physics
Amazing light : a volume dedicated to Charles Hard Townes on his 80th birthday( Book )

8 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Festschrift is a collection of essays contributed by students, colleagues and admirers of Charles Townes, who shared the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1964 for "fundamental work in the field of quantum electronics, which has led to the construction of oscillators and amplifiers based on the laser-maser principle." The contributions to this volume reflect Townes's wider interests and influence, ranging from quantum optics to astrophysics, and from electrical engineering to medicine. The broadly international character of the contributions reflects Townes's deep belief in the international character of science, as well as the breadth of the impact his work and teaching have had. The contributors include nine Nobel laureates. Arthur Shawlow provides the introductory biographical essay. Each of the chapters has been carefully edited to provide a consistency of presentation, while preserving the individuality of the authors
Visions of discovery : new light on physics, cosmology, and consciousness by Raymond Y Chiao( Book )

9 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"World-leading researchers, including Nobel Laureates and rising young stars, examine some of the most important and fundamental questions at the forefronts of modern science, philosophy, and theology, taking into account recent discoveries from a range of fields. This fascinating book is ideal for anyone seeking answers to deep questions about the universe and human life. The remarkable career of Charles H. Townes, inventor of the maser and laser for which he shared the 1964 Nobel Prize in Physics, has spanned seven decades. His interests have ranged from the origin of the Universe to the structure of molecules, always focusing on the nature of human life. Honouring his work, this book explores the most basic questions of science, philosophy, and the nature of existence: How did the Universe begin? Why do the fundamental constants of nature have the values they do? What is human consciousness, and do we have free will?"--

Causal and quantum limitations on faster-than-c group velocities by Raymond Y Chiao( Visual )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Prof. Raymond Chiao, Dept. of Physics, UC Berkeley. A recent experiment at NEC Princeton demonstrated that laser pulses can propagate with group velocities in a cesium vapor cell faster than light in the vacuum due to "gain-assisted superluminality." The five kinds of wave velocities introduced by Sommerfeld and Brillouin are reviewed in light of this experiment. The question arises as to how much pulse advancement a single photon wave packet can experience in a gain medium before running into quantum limitations arising from spontaneous emission noise

Fundamentals of attosecond optics by Zenghu Chang( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Attosecond optical pulse generation, along with the related process of high-order harmonic generation, is redefining ultrafast physics and chemistry. A practical understanding of attosecond optics requires significant background information and foundational theory to make full use of these cutting-edge lasers and advance the technology toward the next generation of ultrafast lasers. Fundamentals of Attosecond Optics provides the first focused introduction to the field. The author presents the underlying concepts and techniques required to enter the field, as well as recent research advances that are driving the field forward. A stand-alone textbook for courses on attosecond optics and the interaction of matter with ultrafast, high-power lasers, the book begins with basic theory and gradually advances to more complex ideas. Using both semi-classical models and quantum mechanics theories, the author explains foundational concepts and mechanisms including femtosecond lasers, high-order harmonic generation, and the technological leap that inspired attosecond pulse generation. The book introduces techniques for generating attosecond train using the basis of high-order harmonics, followed by an explanation of gating methods for extracting single isolated pulses. Chapters examine the connection between attosecond pulses and high harmonic generation, the use of driving lasers as key tools in attosecond generation, the mechanism of chirped pulse amplification, and the generation of few-cycle pulses. The book looks at carrier-envelope phase stabilization and the theoretical foundations for single atom and dipole phase response. It discusses propagation effects, introducing several approaches for improving phase matching; attosecond pulse generation and characterization, covering attosecond pulse train and single isolated pulses; and several examples of experimental applications for attosecond pulses."--Page 4 of cover
Application of millisecond pulsar timing to the long-term stability of clock ensembles by Demetrios (Demetrios Nicholas) Matsakis( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Terrestrial timescales show instabilities due to the physical limitations of the atomic clocks. Stricter environmental isolation and increased numbers of improved cesium clocks and cavity-tuned hydrogen masers have resulted in time scales more accurate by a factor of about five. The use of different clock ensembles results in measurable changes in some millisecond pulsar timing data. We investigate the possible application of millisecond pulsars to define a precise long-term time standard and positional reference system in a nearly inertial reference frame. Although possible quantitative contribution of the two longest studied millisecond pulsars to terrestrial timescales appears minimal, they may prove useful as independent standards in identifying error sources that are difficult to detect due to the finite lifetime and common reference frame of terrestrial clocks. New millisecond pulsars, perhaps some with even better timing properties, may be discovered as a result of the current global pulsar search efforts."
Quantum Optical Aspects of Topological Phases, Such as Berry's Phase( )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The contract was for performing experiments on a recently discovered topological phase factor known as 'Berry's phase.' We proposed to examine this phase at both the quantum and classical levels, in its various manifestations. The goals of this contract were successfully accomplished; in particular, we succeeded in demonstrating this phase at the single photon level, thereby demonstrating that this phase did not originate at the classical level. Possible applications of this phase were explored. A two-photon light source, in the form a parametric down-converter of uv laser photons into highly correlated red photons was successfully constructed, and coincidence counting techniques were successfully applied to the detection of the conjugate signal and idler red photons. This formed the experimental basis for the examination of not only Berry's phase, but of the energy-time uncertainty relations, the Franson experiment, the measurement of the tunneling time of the photon, the quantum eraser, and other optical phenomena closely related to the Einstein-Podolsky- Rosen 'paradox.'
