Item description for Quantum Theory of Optical Coherence: Selected Papers and Lectures by Roy J. Glauber...

A summary of the pioneering work of Glauber in the field of optical coherence phenomena and photon statistics, this book describes the fundamental ideas of modern quantum optics and photonics in a tutorial style. It is thus not only intended as a reference for researchers in the field, but also to give graduate students an insight into the basic theories of the field.

Written by the Nobel Laureate himself, the concepts described in this book have formed the basis for three further Nobel Prizes in Physics within the last decade.

He worked on the Manhattan Project for two years before obtaining his bachelor's degree and then went on to obtain a Ph.D. from Harvard University, where he is now the Mallinckrodt Professor of Physics while also being an Adjunct Professor of Optical Sciences at the University of Arizona. Professor Glauber was awarded the 2005 Nobel Prize in Physics "for his contribution to the quantum theory of optical coherence," together with John L. Hall and Theodor W. Hansch. His groundbreaking research on optical coherence was published in 1963. The most famous contribution of Professor Glauber to physics is the notion and mathematics behind coherent states.

Roy J. Glauber was born in 1925 and has an academic affiliation as follows - Lyman Laboratory, Harvard University, Cambridge, USA.

Reviews - What do customers think about Quantum Theory of Optical Coherence: Selected Papers and Lectures?

Outstanding Achievement  Jun 6, 2007
This is an outstanding book and my only complaint is Prof. Glauber did not produce it earlier. With respect to to his earlier papers from the 60's, they have been put in the context of today's terminology making them easy to read. The other aspects of the book fill a gap which is unfortunately missing in the quantum optics litertaure, or al least difficult to find in one place. The field of quantum theory in optical coherence is an important area of optics which does not receive, in my opinion, sufficient attention. This is particularly true in biomedical optics. This book has been badly needed.
