The 3rd edition of A Guide to Experiments in Quantum Optics gives fully updated coverage of new experiments in quantum optics

This fully revised and expanded edition of a well-established textbook on experiments on quantum optics includes new concepts, results, procedures, and developments in state-of-the-art experiments. It begins with the basic building blocks and ideas of quantum optics, then proceeds on to detailed procedures and new techniques for each experiment. Focusing on communications, metrology, and quantum logic, this new edition also places more focus on single-photon technology and hybrid detection. Moreover, it provides end-of-chapter summaries and full problem sets throughout.

Starting with an introduction to the subject, A Guide to Experiments in Quantum Optics, 3rd Edition, (PDF) presents readers with chapters on classical models of light, photons, quantum models of light, along with basic optical components. It goes on to give readers full coverage of lasers and amplifiers and explores numerous photodetection techniques being used today. Other chapters look into quantum noise, squeezing experiments, the application of squeezed light, and fundamental tests of quantum mechanics. The ebook finishes with a section on quantum information before condensation of the contents and offering an outlook on the future of the field.

-Offers end of chapter summaries and problem sets as new features

-Places emphasis on three major goals: metrology, communications, and quantum logic

-Provides all-new updates to the field of quantum optics, covering the building blocks, models and concepts, latest results, detailed procedures, and modern experiments

-Presents fundamental tests of quantum mechanics (Schrodinger Kitten, multimode entanglement, photon systems as quantum emulators), and introduces the density function

-Includes new trends and technologies in quantum optics and photodetection, new results in sensing and metrology, and more coverage of quantum gates and logic, cluster states, waveguides for multimodes, discord and other quantum measures, and quantum control

A Guide to Experiments in Quantum Optics, 3e is a perfect ebook for professionals, and graduate and upper-level students in engineering and physics science.
