TL;DR: In this article, the principles of Optics are discussed and a discussion of the relationship between the principles and the application of Optica Acta is presented. But this discussion is limited.

TL;DR: In this article, the time dependence of ρ11, ρ22 and ρ12 under steady-state conditions was analyzed under a light field interaction V = -μ12Ee iωt + c.c.
Abstract: (b) Write out the equations for the time dependence of ρ11, ρ22, ρ12 and ρ21 assuming that a light field interaction V = -μ12Ee iωt + c.c. couples only levels |1> and |2>, and that the excited levels exhibit spontaneous decay. (8 marks) (c) Under steady-state conditions, find the ratio of populations in states |2> and |3>. (3 marks) (d) Find the slowly varying amplitude ̃ ρ 12 of the polarization ρ12 = ̃ ρ 12e iωt . (6 marks) (e) In the limiting case that no decay is possible from intermediate level |3>, what is the ground state population ρ11(∞)? (2 marks) 2. (15 marks total) In a 2-level atom system subjected to a strong field, dressed states are created in the form |D1(n)> = sin θ |1,n> + cos θ |2,n-1> |D2(n)> = cos θ |1,n> sin θ |2,n-1>

TL;DR: In this article, the authors propose a definition of fidelity for mixed quantum states in terms of Uhlmann's transition probability formula F(ϱ1, ϱ2) = {trace [(√ϱ 1ϱ2 × √ ϱ 1)1/2]}2 and give new elementary proofs of its essential properties.
Abstract: We propose a definition of fidelity for mixed quantum states in terms of Uhlmann's ‘transition probability’ formula F(ϱ1, ϱ2) = {trace [(√ϱ1ϱ2 × √ϱ1)1/2]}2 and give new elementary proofs of its essential properties.
