Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Topics will include:
1) Quantization of the Electromagnetic Field,
2) Quantum states of light (Fock states, coherent states, squeezed states etc.),
3) Phase-space methods (representation theorems, Wigner, Glauber and Husimi function, optical equivalence theorem),
4) Quantum linear optics ( beamsplitters and phase-shifters),
5) Elements of entanglement theory for continuous-variable systems,
6) Hong-Ou-Mandel effect,
7) Non-linear optics (parametric down-conversion),
8) Light-matter interaction (Rabi model, Jaynes-Cummings model).

Assessment and permitted materials

One single written exam including topics from lectures and exercises. You have to collect 50+% of points to pass the exam. The modality of the exam (digital or in person) will depend on the University measures against the COVID-19 pandemic.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

Prerequisites: Quantum mechanics and basics of electrodynamics.

Examination topics

All what we learn during lectures and exercises.
