At the end of this learning unit, the student is able to :
a. Contribution of the teaching unit to the learning outcomes of the programme (PHYS2M and PHYS2M1)
AA 1.1, AA 1.2, AA 1.5, AA1.6, AA 3.1, AA3.2, AA 3.3, AA 3.4, AA 4.2, AA 5.2, AA 5.4, AA 8.1
b. Specific learning outcomes of the teaching unit
At the end of this teaching unit, the student will be able to :
1. handle the description of laser-matter interaction using perturbative and non perturbative approaches ;
2. apply the dressed state model to various laser-atom interaction processes ;
3. use the quantification of light to describe coherent and squeezed states.
- Time-dependent and time-independent perturbation theory
- Level-shift operator
- Floquet theory
- Field quantization
- Dressed state model
- Coherent states
- Squeezed states
