Synopsis:

The course is focused to the description of laser gain medium and laser generatorbehavior using the general principles of quantum statistical physics. A semi-classical and fully quantum laser model and selected applications of these models are described.

Requirements:
Syllabus of lectures:

1. Physical model of laser -laser as a closed system, the quantum Liouville equation2. Quantum theory of damping -the master equation for the evolution of the damped quantum system3. Master equation for damped atom and harmonic oscillator4. Semi-classical theory of radiation interaction with two-level resonant matter5. Stationary signal propagation -dispersive characteristics resonant matter6. Semi-classical description optical impulse propagation5. Lasers dynamics in rate-equations approximation6.
