This course gives you access to basic tools and concepts to understand research articles and books on modern quantum optics. You will learn about quantization of light, formalism to describe quantum states of light without any classical analogue, and observables allowing one to demonstrate typical quantum properties of these states. These tools will be applied to the emblematic case of a one-photon wave packet, which behaves both as a particle and a wave. Wave-particle duality is a great quantum mystery in the words of Richard Feynman. You will be able to fully appreciate real experiments demonstrating wave-particle duality for a single photon, and applications to quantum technologies based on single photon sources, which are now commercially available. The tools presented in this course will be widely used in our second quantum optics course, which will present more advanced topics such as entanglement, interaction of quantized light with matter, squeezed light, etc...

來自QUANTUM OPTICS 1 : SINGLE PHOTONS的熱門評論
This was an awesome course. I recommend it to all who are working with Quantum physics, Quantum mechanics, Quantum Optics, Quantum Computing and Information Science, Quantum Communication
Very clear and informative. The courses are short respectively and they are very exciting. The quizzes are a very good review to keep you concentrated.
Fantastic course. I do not have a quantum optics course at my university this course had immediate benefits to my graduate research in quantum optics.
beautiful explanation with in depth coursework in quantum optics. one should must study this course if interested in quantum physics.
