Since the previous batch of lecture notes were surprisingly popular, here's the next couple of classes worth:
- Lecture 5: Stellar Interferometry, coherence, intensity correlation functions, Hanbury Brown and Twiss experiment.
- Lecture 6: Non-classical light, photon anti-bunching, single-photon interference.
Sadly, this exhausts the notes I had written in advance (what with one thing and another, I haven't written any new lectures this past week), which means I need to write at least three lectures this weekend, on the mathematical description of quantized light, coherent states of the electromagnetic field, and squeezed states and interferometry. Whee!
