The Quantum Mechanics of Light: Interference, Entanglement and Ghost Imaging
The quantum theory has outgrown most of its early dilemmas of reconciling the images of waves and particles. More recently, studies of new forms of interference based on multi-quantum phenomena and their related statistics have given rise to the broader field now called quantum optics. That field has rapidly expanded to include the development of the laser and the considerable variety of phenomena it has generated. Among these are some altogether novel ways of using quanta to produce optical images.
