In the 2005 fall semester I will teach a course on Modern Atomic and Optical Physics, together with Mikhail Lukin. This course is aimed at graduate students and will include recent experimental work.
Physics 285b. Modern Atomic and Optical Physics II
Catalog Number: 4195
Mikhail D. Lukin, Markus Greiner
Half course (fall term). M., W., 11:30–1. EXAM GROUP: 4, 5
Introduction to quantum optics and modern atomic physics. The basic concepts and theoretical tools will be introduced. Topics will include coherence phenomena, non-classical states of light and matter, atom cooling and trapping and atom optics. The second of a two-term subject sequence that provides the foundations for contemporary research.
Prerequisite: A course in electromagnetic theory (Physics 232a or equivalent); one half-course in intermediate or advanced quantum mechanics
