Title: Statistics of quantum optical fields interacting with matter

We investigate, by using the Lindblad master equation method, quantum trajectory approach and Green’s function formalism, the measurement back-action in single photon experiments as well as the fundamental phenomena related to the field-matter interaction and optical energy transfer in cavities. The single-photon operations based on beam splitter and a photo detector are investigated and applied e.g. for noiseless amplification of weak coherent fields. Furthermore, we investigate different types of field-matter interaction in optical cavities and show how different types of interactions lead to e.g. bunched, Poissonian or antibunched photon statistics. In addition, the formation of the steady state and the optical energy transfer in layered structures under non-equilibrium conditions are investigated.
