A Group-Theoretical Approach to Quantum Optics: Models of by Andrei B. Klimov

By Andrei B. Klimov

Written through significant members to the sector who're popular in the group, this is often the 1st accomplished precis of the various effects generated by means of this method of quantum optics up to now. As such, the ebook analyses chosen themes of quantum optics, targeting atom-field interactions from a group-theoretical viewpoint, whereas discussing the imperative quantum optics versions utilizing algebraic language. the final result's a transparent demonstration of some great benefits of making use of algebraic the right way to quantum optics difficulties, illustrated by means of a couple of end-of-chapter difficulties. a useful resource for atomic physicists, graduates and scholars in physics.

Quantum Theory From Five Reasonable Axioms

The standard formula of quantum conception is predicated on particularly vague axioms (employing complicated Hilbert areas, Hermitean operators, and the hint formulation for calculating probabilities). during this paper it's proven that quantum thought will be derived from 5 very fair axioms. the 1st 4 of those axioms are patently in step with either quantum thought and classical chance thought.

Self-consistent QFT and Bosonization for Strongly Correlated Electron Systems (no refs or index)

This learn monograph deals an advent to complicated quantum box theoretical thoughts for many-particle structures past perturbation conception. numerous schemes for resummation of the Feynman diagrams are defined. The ensuing approximations are specifically well matched for strongly correlated fermion and boson structures.

2nπ nn e−n , we obtain P00 (t) ∼ √ 1 Aπ −→ 0 that is, the system with a large number of atoms has a greater probability of becoming excited. 35 36 2 Atomic Dynamics Next, we calculate the probability P01 (t) of a transition from the ground state to the first excited state. k! |k, A A−k ! we obtain | k|eαS+ |0 |2 = |α|2k k! 2 | k|Sk+ |0 |2 = A! tan2k t k! A − k ! This yields the probability P0k (t): P0k (t) = A! cos2A−2k t sin2k t k! A − k ! It can easily be seen that the normalization condition holds ( Ak=0 P0k (t) = 1), that is, the total probability is conserved (as it should be, for a unitary process).

5). Applying the summation rule A Pkm (θ) m=0 αm m! (A − m)! 1 = (α cos θ/2 + i sin θ/2)k k−A k! A − k ! 37), we find | k|U(∞)|0 |2 = |α∞ + i|2A α∞ − i A! k! A − k ! 38), we obtain | k|U(∞)|0 |2 = A! |µ|2(A−k) 1 − |µ|2 k! A − k ! 40) Thus, the probability of excitation is expressed in terms of the reflection coefficient µ. 40) completely solves the problem of the excitation of a set of two-level atoms by a classical pulse. 32) has the form 1 ξ(t) = √ e± i t −∞ (τ) dτ In this case, the parameter |µ|2 is given by the equation |µ|2 = 1 4 ∞ −∞ which is valid if |µ|2 √ dτ d (τ) dτ 1.

2. Nondiagonal resonant terms, which, under certain conditions imposed on the transition frequencies, describe resonant transitions; in other words, these terms become time independent in the rotating frame if certain relations between ω and are fulfilled. 3. Nondiagonal terms that would never represent resonant interactions, and hence, can be eliminated. 4). e. c. c. c. c. It is shown in Chapter 9 that that only odd resonances, ω ≈ 2k + 1 this system. 6 Collective Atomic Systems Now let us consider the evolution of a collection of A two-level atoms in a classical external field.
