Who is this class for: This course is primarily intended for university students who have a good knowledge of basic quantum mechanics and classical electromagnetism, and who want to enter in the field of quantum optics. It is also intended for engineers who want to catch up with the rapidly developing quantum technologies derived from the second quantum revolution, in which the observation and control of single quantum objects, such as single photons, is a key ingredient.

More exact usage of English language would help. Also written course material would be great. I ended up buying Mr. Aspect's book because I like the topic so much. A final exam would give a more satisfying feeling. I have the feeling I muddled through on lots of the questions. I am redoing the course now to get "perfect" understanding an memorizing things. Alternatively, a final test could be to write a reaction about a resent article.

This is a first rate course given by a master of the subject matter. The presentation style - especially for the equations - are easy to follow. The ideas and concepts are concisely explained. The enthusiasm is infectious. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to know the latest developments in quantum optics. I look forward to part 2!

A course worth taking for those seeking an introduction to Quantum Optics.

A challenging course but well worth the effort.
