APPPHYS 376: Literature of Cavity Quantum Electrodynamics
Tue+Thu 2:15-3:30pm / 126 McCollough
Cavity quantum electrodynamics is a cornerstone of modern quantum optics, quantum information science, and non-equilibrium quantum statistical mechanics. In this course we will first review basic concepts and theoretical formalism of cavity QED and then turn to a survey of key literature of the past three decades. The preliminary syllabus comprises two weeks of introductory lectures and eight weeks of journal club-format for the discussion of papers.
