Item description for Fundamentals of Quantum Optics and Quantum Information by Peter Lambropoulos & David Petrosyan...

This book is an introduction to the two closely related subjects of quantum optics and quantum information. Essentially, the physical aspects of quantum information processing have now become an integral part of quantum optics. The book gives a simple, self-contained introduction to both subjects, while illustrating the physical principles of quantum information processing using quantum optical systems. It thus has an interdisciplinary character. For the benefit of a wider audience and to make the subject matter of the book accessible to those with backgrounds other than physics, the authors also include a brief review of quantum mechanics. Although much of the material used here can also be found in other books, discussed at various depths, the particular combination of the topics covered in this book is unique. Furthermore, some aspects of quantum information, for example those pertaining to recent experiments on cavity QED and quantum dots, are described here for the first time in book form.

More About Peter Lambropoulos & David Petrosyan

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Peter Lambropoulos, at present Professor of Physics at the University of Crete, received his PhD in 1965 from the University of Michigan (USA). Since then he has been visiting fellow at JILA, Univ. of Colorado (USA), has served as chair of the physics department at the University of Southern California, Head of the Theory group at the Max Planck Institute for Quantum Optics in Garching as well as director of the Institute of Electronic Structure and Lasers in Crete. The research in his groups over the last 25 years has spanned a broad area of laser physics, such as multiphoton and strong field processes, coherent control, cavity QED, quantum optics in photonic bandgap materials, with recent involvement in the theory of atom lasers and quantum dots. He is author or coauthor of about 250 papers as well as numerous chapters in volumes dealing with the above subfields. P. Lambropoulos is Fellow of the American Physical Society, Chair of the Board EGAS (European Group on Atomic Spectroscopy) of EPS.

David Petrosyan received his PhD in 1999 from the Institute for Physical Research, ANAS (Armenia). Since then he has been postdoctoral fellow at the Institute of Electronic Structure and Lasers (IESL) in Crete, Feinberg postdoctoral fellow at the Weizmann Institute of Science (Israel) and since 2002 is a member of the IESL. His research interests are centered around theoretical Laser Physics and Quantum Optics, such as coherent effects in multi-level atomic systems and cavity QED, as well as physical implementations of quantum computation and quantum communication schemes.

Reviews - What do customers think about Fundamentals of Quantum Optics and Quantum Information?

A good introduction  Dec 11, 2007
This book is divided into two more or less independent sections, the first on quantum optics and the second on quantum information. It is a very concise introduction to both fields, and the authors do a good job explaining key concepts briefly, so that you can get a broad overview of many different topics. In other words, unlike many other textbooks, this book really is an introduction; on the one hand it will not serve as an exhaustive reference, but on the other hand it can easily be read through from cover to cover for a solid overview.

I enjoyed reading this book very much, and I thought the presentations were helpful and clear. The first chapter is an introduction to the necessary quantum mechanics, and I am not able to judge of its helpfulness, since I have quite a lot of background in QM, so I don't know how accessible this really makes the rest of the book if you don't have some prior exposure to basic quantum mechanics. But otherwise this should be a great starting point for someone interested in the field, and perhaps even a familiarity with linear algebra would be a good enough background. In any case, for me it was a helpful and accessible self-study, and I think it would also be a great textbook for an introductory course either at the undergraduate (after QM) level or the graduate level.
