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
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.
There should be more resources to study like some lecture notes. Besides that, the overall level is very good.
This course give me a brief idea about single photon. Thank you for providing such a good course.
A course worth taking for those seeking an introduction to Quantum Optics.
Can't wait any longer for the second course. Wonderful. Stimulating.
Great Course! Thinking about taking the second part of this series.
A. Aspect is clear methodical and precise. It makes learning eas
Is it necessary to follow this course to enrol in the future second course on quantum optics?
There is no obligation, but the notions learned in this course will be necessary to follow the second course, which will present interaction between matter and quantized radiation, absorption, stimulated emission and spontaneous emission of photons, squeezed light, entangled photons, quantum treatment of non-linear optics, and applications to quantum technologies, etc...
