In real laser applications, how big is the complex parameter (i.e. <n>) of the corresponding coherent state of the field?
In quantum optics, the output from a laser is modelled using a coherent state; what are some orders-of-magnitude for the complex parameter (usually denoted $\alpha$) of the coherent state ...
I am an amateur of experimental physics, and I would like to use a Stanford dual sr400 counter to make the photons coincidence counting to see quantum optical effects. Right now I am about to set up ...
Is it possible to use the sawtooth shape diffraction grating instead of rectangular grating if yes then which parameters will affect at the output ? Secondly, what is special in blaze grating ...
The main idea of femtosecond or Attosecond lasers is to achive the high energy or do we have any other parameters achieved by ultra-fast lasers ?
In Pockels electro-optic effect, change in Electric field produces change in refractive index/ birefringence. Moreover this effect becomes electric field squared in the case of Kerr effect. If we ...
I would like a suggestion on a price-efficient way of experimenting with spontaneous down-conversion and single-photon counting. The simple dual-slit experiment could be one part of an application ...
