**Optical Physics and Quantum Electronics**

by R. Victor Jones

**Publisher**: Harvard University 2000

**Description**:

The course develops the theoretical background needed to understand developments in optical research and photonic technology. Topics presented include wave propagation in anisotropic media, glass fibers, planar dielectrics and random media; interaction of light with matter; quantization of the radiation field; laser physics; photon statistics and noise; nonlinear optics; optical modulation and switching; acousto-optics; parametric devices; optical solitons; photon migration.
