Authored by one of the founders and major players in this field of research, this is a thorough and comprehensive approach to the quantum mechanical output coupling theory of lasers -- an important area of optical physics that has so far been neglected in the scientific literature. <br> Clearly structured, the various sections cover one-dimensional optical cavity, laser, and microcavity laser with output coupling, atom-field interaction in a free-dimensional space, 3D analysis of spontaneous emission in a planar microcavity with output coupling, plus two-atom spontaneous emission.<br> With numerous end-of-chapter problems, this is vital reading for theoretical physicists, laser specialists, and physicists in industry, as well as students and lecturers in physics.
Advances in laser technology over the last 10-15 years have stimulated study of the active control of quantum molecular dynamics. Lasers may used to generate external fields of varying intensity, phases, and spectral content, which then are used to alter the molecular dynamics of a system so as to generate more of a particular product. Control of reactions at this microscopic level is one of the hot areas of research in chemical physics. This book describes the current status of the theory of optical control of molecular dynamics
Unique in that it is jointly written by an experimentalist and a theorist, this monograph presents universal quantum computation based on quantum teleportation as an elementary subroutine and multi-party entanglement as a universal resource. Optical approaches to measurement-based quantum computation are also described, including schemes for quantum error correction, with most of the experiments carried out by the authors themselves. <br> Ranging from the theoretical background to the details of the experimental realization, the book describes results and advances in the field, backed by numerous illustrations of the authors' experimental setups.<br> Aimed at researchers, physicists, and graduate and PhD students in physics, theoretical quantum optics, quantum mechanics, and quantum information.<br>
