A quantum scattering theory approach to quantum-optical measurements

The theory of quantum-optical measurements is developed via a Heisenberg picture approach to quantum scattering theory. The multitime quantum correlation functions describing the measurements are

Coherent-state approach to entanglement and teleportation

Two-mode oscillator quantum states are described via coherent state superpositions. The one-complex-plane coherent-state representation is introduced as a generalization of low-dimensional

Quantum Theory of a Strongly-Dissipative Scalar Field

The properties of a quantum dissipative scalar field is analyzed by Caldeira-Leggett model in strong-coupling regime. The Lagrangian of the total system is canonically quantized and the full

Quantum Theory of a Strongly-Dissipative Scalar Field

Quantum statistics of an arbitrary cavity field: a direct scattering measurement scheme

We consider the interaction of an atomic beam with a single-mode quantized radiation field inside a cavity and an injected classical field. Under suitable conditions, this can be used as a scheme to

Quantum Harmonic Analysis of the Density Matrix

We will study rigorously the notion of mixed states and their density operators (or matrices.) We will also discuss the quantum-mechanical consequences of possible variations of Planck's constant h.

Measurement-induced manipulation of the quantum-classical border

We demonstrate the possibility of controlling the border between the quantum and the classical world by performing nonselective measurements on quantum systems. We consider a quantum harmonic

Gaussian states in continuous variable quantum information

These notes originated out of a set of lectures in Quantum Optics and Quantum Information given by one of us (MGAP) at the University of Napoli and the University of Milano. A quite broad set of

Linear Canonical Transforms on Quantum States of Light

A basic introduction of lossless linear canonical transformations acting on photons is presented and some of their applications for elementary quantum information processing are discussed.

In this paper we discuss quantum curl forces. We present both the classical and quantum theory of linear curl forces. The quantum theory is shown to reproduce the classical theory precisely if
