AEP 4400 - Nonlinear and Quantum Optics

Spring. 3 credits. Student option grading.

Prerequisite: AEP 3560 , AEP 3620 , or equivalent.

J. Moses.

Introduction to the fundamentals of the interaction of laser light with matter, including a survey of phenomena and photonic devices based on these processes with relevance to modern science and technology. Topics include the origins of optical nonlinearities, propagation of laser beams and ultrashort pulses, harmonic generation, parametric amplification, nonlinearly guided waves and self-focusing, solitons, spontaneous and stimulated scattering, optical resonance and two-level atoms, multiphoton processes, and ultra-intense laser-matter interactions.
