PHYS-453 / 4 credits

Teacher: Kippenberg Tobias

Language: English


Summary

This course on one hand develops the quantum theory of electromagnetic radiation from the principles of quantum electrodynamics. It will cover basis historic developments (coherent states, squeezed states, quantum theory of spontaneous emission) and moreover modern developments, e.g. quantum noise.
