Introduction to Quantum Optics (IMPRS UFAST focus course)


This course will provide an introduction to basic quantum optics. A particular focus will be placed on light-matter interactions and the derivation and analysis of simple models such as seminal Jaynes Cummings model. We will explore the crossover from weak to strong light-matter coupling, and of experimental signatures thereof. If time permits, based on discussion with the participants, more specialised topics could be introduced, such as many-body cavity QED or quantum metrology.

Topics include:

  • Electromagnetic field quantization
  • Quantum states of light
  • Jaynes-Cummings model
  • Purcell effect
  • Input-output relations
