Summary:
Focuses on the properties of optical fields and their interaction with matter. This work offers an introduction to lasers, LEDs, and the rate equations, and then describes the emission and detection processes. It summarizes and reviews the mathematical background of the quantum theory embodied in the Hilbert space.
