Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

In this course we will learn about the quantum mechanical description of light and its interaction with matter.

Topics will include:
Quantization of the Electromagnetic Field
Beam Splitters and interferometers
Parametric down-conversion
Interaction of light with matter: The Jaynes-Cummings model
Applications of quantum states of light in quantum information
Entanglement in quantum optics

Assessment and permitted materials

Exercises (70% of the overall mark)
a) Completing the exercises given each week (minimum 50% to pass). Please hand in at each exercise class a list with the exercises you have completed.
b) Either solving correctly the exercises when asked to pass to the blackboard, or presenting a final written exercise exam (minimum 50% to pass).
The final mark for exercises will be the average of points in a) and b).
