Coherence in Classical Electromagnetism and Quantum Optics

This thesis is a study of coherence theory in light in classical electromagnetism and quantum optics. Specifically two quantities are studied: The degree of first-order temporal coherence, which

2 Optical Schrödinger equation Our canonical field theory of light and matter contains

Impressive pictures of moving Bose-Einstein condensates have been taken using phase-contrast imaging [M.R. Andrews et al., Science 273, 84 (1996)]. We calculate the quantum backaction of this

Quantum Microwave Radiation and its Interference Characterized by Correlation Function Measurements in Circuit Quantum Electrodynamics

Superconducting circuits provide an attractive architecture for quantum optics experiments in solid state systems. Microwave radiation interacts strongly with individual (macroscopic) quantum

Quantum coherent optical phase modulation in an ultrafast transmission electron microscope

TLDR
The results reveal the potential of quantum control for the precision structuring of electron densities, with possible applications ranging from ultrafast electron spectroscopy and microscopy to accelerator science and free-electron lasers.

Quantum optical signatures in strong-field laser physics: Infrared photon counting in high-order-harmonic generation

TLDR
A light-electron wave function is obtained which is a closed-form solution of the time-dependent Schrödinger equation (TDSE) which provides information about the quantum optical features of the interaction not accessible by semi-classical theories.

Simple optical instruments are linear optical networks where the incident light modes are turned into equal numbers of outgoing modes by linear transformations. For example, such instruments are beam

Operational definition of quantum correlations of light

Quantum features of correlated optical modes define a major aspect of the nonclassicality in quantized radiation fields. However, the phase-sensitive detection of a two-mode light field is restricted
