Elements of Light–Matter Interaction
Abstract
This chapter briefly explains several concepts pertaining to the interaction between light and matter. Basic concepts such as Einstein coefficients, which describe the spontaneous emission and the stimulated absorption, as well as the classical and quantum mechanical description of absorption and emission processes are explained. More-detailed descriptions of various emission and absorption models can be found in several textbooks, such as those by Yariv, Siegman, and Miloni and Eberly.
