Quantum optics/cavity QED refs?

  • #1
I just got put on a project involving quantum optics, but have a background in semiconductor transport physics/electronic structure of materials. Does anybody know of a good textbook in this area, covering topics such as, say, the Jaynes-Cummings model?

Gerry&Knight's book is quite good if you are are beginner

https://www.amazon.com/dp/052152735X/?tag=pfamazon01-20

It is also worth downloading a copy of the python toolbox Qutip; running the examples will teach you a lot about e.g. the J-C model.
