Quantum Electronics for Atomic Physics and Telecommunication: Second Edition

Warren Nagourney


Quantum Electronics for Atomic Physics provides a course in quantum electronics for researchers in atomic physics and other related areas (including telecommunications). The book covers the usual topics, such as Gaussian beams, optical cavities, lasers, nonlinear optics, modulation techniques and fiber optics, but also includes a number of areas not usually found in a textbook on quantum electronics. Among the latter are such practical matters as the enhancement of nonlinear processes in a build-up cavity or periodically poled waveguide, impedance matching into a cavity and astigmatism in ring ...

Keywords: Gaussian beam, laser, femtosecond laser, frequency stabilization, fiber optics, semiconductor laser, electro-optic modulator, acousto-optic modulator, optical cavity
