Course: Interaction of Radiation with Matter

Department/Abbreviation: OPT/PGSIZ

Year: 2020

Guarantee: 'prof. Mgr. Radim Filip, Ph.D.', 'prof. Mgr. Jaromír Fiurášek, Ph.D.'

Annotation: The goal of course is advanced analysis of quantum interaction of light with atoms, ions, semiconductor circuits, mechanical oscillators and in nonlinear media together with a description of basic experiments.

Course review:
1. Interaction of electromagnetic radiation with atoms (resonant and no-resonant interaction with individual atoms, resonant fluorescence, interaction of light with atomic assemblies) 2. Interaction of atoms with microwave radiation (micro-masers, quantum electrodynamics in cavities of resonators) 3. Interaction of individual atoms with radiation in optical cavities. Single photon guns. 4. Propagation of laser pulses in a resonant medium and effects of atomic coherence (auto-induced transparency, photon echo, electromagnetically induced transparency, coherent trapping of light, generation without population inversion, super-radiance) 5. Interaction of light in optical nonlinear parametric oscillators, quantum amplifiers in cavities, squeezing generation and entanglement generation. 6. Interaction of light in semiconductors (macroscopic and mesoscopic PN junction, Coulomb blockade, quantum wells, quantum dots) 7. Interaction of light with mechanical oscillators in optical cavities. Quantum interfaces between light and matter. 8. Trapped ions and their quantum features. Interaction of single ion with light. Quantum information processing with single ions.
