- Quantum Optics for Engineers provides a transparent and methodical introduction to quantum optics via the Dirac's bra-ket notation with an emphasis on practical applications and basic aspects of quantum mechanics such as Heisenberg's uncertainty principle and Schrodinger's equation. Self-contained and using mainly first-year calculus and algebra tools, the book:Illustrates the interferometric quantum origin of fundamental optical principles such as diffraction, refraction, and reflectionProvides a transparent introduction, via Dirac's notation.
