Quantum Optics in the '80s

Spectacular experimental progress in quantum optics was made in the 1980s based on a solid footing of theoretical work in the previous two decades. In the past 10 years, a variety of physical systems have been shown to generate nonclassical states of light whose noise properties deviate by as much as an order of magnitude from the more common states of light such as laser and thermal radiation.
