This introduction to the essential physics of quantum electronics and lasers covers fundamental topics in modern optics, the applicability of various theoretical approaches, and the physical meaning of laser-related phenomena. Experimental results and properties of practical lasers are interwoven, thereby allowing an explicit demonstration of the rate equation approach and the semi-classical treatment. The basic concepts of non-linear optical devices and laser spectroscopy are introduced.
