Summary
This book provides a solid pedagogical background in the techniques used in quantum optics, with an emphasis on open quantum systems. Suitable for undergraduates as a second semester quantum mechanics course or first year graduate students, this book begins with a short summary of quantum mechanics and contains physics of open systems and their application to light/matter interactions. Written in a simplified manner and classroom tested, this book provides the fundamentals of quantum optics and includes recent developments in the field
Member of
Biographical or historical data
Dr Rice earned a BS in Physics at Wright State University in 1981. After two years in industry, he went to graduate school and earned a PhD in Physics at the University of Arkansas in 1988. He went on to become a professor of physics at Miami University for 30 years, and most recently is a Sr Research scientist at Azimuth Corporation. His research has been primarily in quantum optics and physics pedagogy, with specialties in cavity/waveguide quantum electrodynamics, nonclassical light, strongly coupled atom-field systems, quantum statistical mechanics, and computational methods including quantum trajectory theory.
