This book presents a systematic account of optical coherence theory within the framework of classical optics, as applied to such topics as radiation from sources of different states of coherence, foundations of radiometry, effects of source coherence on the spectra of radiated fields, coherence theory of laser modes, and scattering of partially coherent light by random by: Optical Coherence and Quantum Optics by Leonard Mandel. This book presents a systematic account of optical coherence theory within the framework of classical optics, as applied to such topics as radiation from sources of different states of coherence, foundations of radiometry, effects of source coherence on the spectra of radiated fields.   About this book A summary of the pioneering work of Glauber in the field of optical coherence phenomena and photon statistics, this book describes the fundamental ideas of modern quantum optics and photonics in a tutorial style. The scope of the Conference was largely confined to basic pro­ blems in the general area of optical coherence and quantum optics, and excluded engineering applications that are well covered by other meetings. Approximately scientists from 9 countries participated, most of whom are active workers in .

This book presents a systematic account of optical coherence theory within the framework of classical optics, as applied to such topics as radiation from sources of different states of coherence, foundations of radiometry, effects of source coherence on the spectra of radiated fields, coherence theory of laser modes, and scattering of partially coherent light by random media. This book presents a systematic treatment of a broad area of modern optical physics dealing with coherence and fluctuations of light. This field has largely developed since the first lasers became available in the s. The first three chapters cover various mathematical techniques which are needed later. A systematic account is then presented of optical coherence theory within the framework Reviews: 1. Introduction to Quantum Optics - Grynberg, Aspect, Fabre: I found this book to be a very good introduction for someone with some background in QM at undergrad level. As the subtitle suggests, the authors first start with the semi-classical description of light-matter interactions before moving on to the fully quantised treatment.

The Eighth Rochester Conference on Coherence and Quantum Optics was held on the campus of the University of Rochester during the period June , This volume contains the proceedings of the meeting. The meeting was preceded by an affiliated conference, the International Conference on . Concepts of Quantum Optics is a coherent and sequential coverage of some real insight into quantum physics. This book is divided into six chapters, and begins with an overview of the principles and concepts of radiation and quanta, with an emphasis on the .
