More About Resonance Fluorescence

H. J. Carmichael

The resonant interaction between a two-state atomic transition and coherent light is the simplest and most widely studied example of the quantized interaction between light and matter. Surprisingly, this problem is still not exhausted as a source of new insights into the quantum statistics of optical fields and their interaction with atoms. Two areas of current research continue to add to our understanding of this problem—the study of nonclassical light, particularly squeezed light, and the study of intracavity atom-field interactions.
