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 exam offered as a moodle-based multiple choice test.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

Einführung in die Physik I-IV
Theoretische Physik I-II

Examination topics

Topics related to the content of the lecture (see also literature).

Reading list

A manuscript of the lecture will be provided. Further literature will be given during the lecture in the context of the topics.
All material will be available at the moodle platform.
