Dear all,

I am looking for an introductory QED textbook (or quantum optics if not) that also covers QED cavity and Purcell effect in one of its chapters. I am not planning to extensively understand every single detail about QED cavity and Purcell effect since I am not a physicist and I don't really need to go that far. However, I would like to know the basic theoretical treatment of these effects.

Could someone recommend me a good textbook?

Thank you,
HAYAO

I am not sure but I think that Purcell effect is covered is Zangwill's textbook, funny you mention it I think I glossed over this topic yesterday.

Thank you, but I think Zangwill's textbook (Modern Electrodynamics?) is mainly classical electrodynamics...
