Aim of course

Understanding the properties of light and the interaction between light and matter at the quantum mechanical level, and applications thereof in modern physics.

Subject of course

Topics:

(1) Electromagnetically induced transparency, slow light and quantum memories for light;

(2) Laser cooling and trapping of neutral atoms and ions: Doppler- and Sisyphus-cooling; optical and magnetic traps, ion traps

(3) Photodetection: coherence, photon-photon correlations, correlation functions;

(4) Sources of non-classical light: entangled photon pairs, squeezed light, test of quantum mechanics (Bell's inequalities);

(5)  Selected topics from quantum information processing and communication: e.g. basics of quantum information,  quantum-teleportation, quantum-algorithms, quantum-cryptography;
