About this book


Electromagnetic Noise and Quantum Optical Measurements is the result of more than 40 years of research and teaching. The first three chapters provide the background necessary to understand the basic concepts. Then shot noise and thermal noise are discussed, followed by linear noisy multiparts, the quantum theory of waveguides and resonators, an analysis of phase-insensitive systems, detection, photon probability distributions, solitons, phase-sensitive amplification, squeezing, the quantum theory of solitons and squeezing, and quantum non-demolition measurements. Rich appendices give additional information. The book is intended for graduate students and scientists in physics and engineering. Numerous problems and selected solutions will help readers to deepen their knowledge.
