Quantum Optics is an area of atomic, molecular and optical physics that deals with lasers, i. e. sources of coherent electromagnetic radiation. It is one of the areas of physics that influence our every day's life particularly profoundly.
by Andrzej Jamiolkowski (ed.) - InTech
The book presents some aspects of modern theory of open quantum systems. It introduces several topics, such as modeling of quantum noise, quantum communication processes, and computational complexity in the analysis of quantum operations.

Contents: Classical harmonic oscillator in external field; Classical electrodynamics; Quantization of electromagnetic field; States of quantized electromagnetic fields; Atom-field interaction; Spontaneous emission; Optical Bloch equations; etc.
by Karl-Peter Marzlin - University of Calgary
These notes cover the fundamentals of quantum and nonlinear optics. The foundations of quantum optics include quantization of the electromagnetic field and many-particle theories, interaction between atoms and photons, few-level models for atoms...
