Most previous texts on quantum optics have been written primarily for the graduate student market at PhD level and above. Quantum optics: an introduction aims to introduce a wide range of topics at a lower level suitable for advanced undergraduate and Masters level students in physics. The text is divided into four main parts, covering modern topics in both pure and applied quantum optics: I. Introduction and background material. II. Photons. III. Atom-photon interactions. IV. Quantum information processing. The emphasis of the subject development is on intuitive physical understanding rather than mathematical arguments, although many derivations are included where appropriate. The text includes numerous illustrations, with a particular emphasis on the experimental observations of quantum optical phenomena. Each chapter includes worked examples, together with 10-15 exercises with solutions. Six appendices are included to supplement the main subject material.

After his own initial training at the University of Exeter (some time in the 1980's), Mark took up a post as an Educational Psychologist in the West Midlands. He moved to work as an EP in Bromley and then to the Essex E.P.S and also began working as an academic tutor on the Educational Psychology training programme at the University of East London. He has since been Head of National Advisory and Assessment Services at SCOPE, where he developed integrated models of assessment, and services for people with complex disabilities. More recently he held the post of EP trainer at the Tavistock Clinic and University of Essex and in October 2009 he was appointed the Programme Director for Educational Psychology at UEL.
