Theoretical Quantum Optics and Atomic Physics
The areas in which Israel Senitzky has done research are the interaction of elementary systems (atoms and molecules) with each other and with electromagnetic fields, conceptual problems in quantum mechanics, and the relationship between classical and quantum phenomena. Subjects on which he has worked include the interaction between "twolevel" atomic systems and cavity fields (a subject known as "cavity electrodynamics"), the effects of zeropoint energy and vacuum fluctuations, quantum noise, dissipation in quantum mechanics, cooperative phenomena, resonance fluorescence, and quantum mechanical coherence, correlation, and entanglement. Much of his work is aimed at providing a more meaningful understanding of quantum mechanics and quantumoptical phenomena.
