Quantum Optics and Nonlinear Optics
by Karl-Peter Marzlin
Publisher: University of Calgary 2007
Number of pages: 209
These notes cover the fundamentals of quantum and nonlinear optics. The foundations of quantum optics include quantization of the electromagnetic field and many-particle theories, interaction between atoms and photons, few-level models for atoms, open quantum systems and density matrix, and electromagnetically induced transparency.

These lecture notes cover some basic topics in nonlinear optics, they accompany lectures held for the Ph. D. students. The first part gives a short introduction to the physics of crystals and the treatment of symmetry-dependent properties.

Nonlinear optics is the discipline in which the electric polarization density of the medium is studied as a nonlinear function of the electromagnetic field of the light. This text is an introduction to the phenomena encountered in nonlinear optics.

What are the physical origins of nonlinearity? We will have to give different answers depending on the case under consideration. This text aims at providing a general physical background rather than dealing with the details of the various projects.
