Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The aim of the course is to obtain an understanding of the quantum properties of light. The course will provide an introduction into the experimental foundations of quantum optics, the key experiments and the basic theoretical principles. Topics include: review of linear and nonlinear optics; lasers and cavities; photon statistics; nonclassical states of light; cavity quantum electrodynamics (cavity QED); quantum optical control of matter (trapped ions, quantum optomechanics); measuring time and space with quantum light (frequency combs, atomic clocks, gravitational wave detectors)

Assessment and permitted materials

In-class examples during the course; one final written exam at the end of the course
