This is the second edition of Yanhua Shih’s book “An Introduction to Quantum Optics”. This book is a selected collection of Dr. Shih’s thirty-year lecture notes on quantum optics for his Ph.D. thesis students and for an introductory-level graduate course at the University of Maryland. Dr. Shih’s students and colleagues encouraged him to publish these lecture notes as a textbook or reference book that might be helpful in understanding the quantum theory of light from a relatively elementary introductory level. This book introduces and analyzes some of the most exciting experimental research to date in the field of quantum optics and quantum information, helping readers understand the revolutionary changes occurring in optical science.
