Radiation Sources

FieldApp is capable of initializing four types of radiation sources. Each of these sources corresponds to a particular type of quantum field state and obeys a different kind of statistics. These field states are: Fock, thermal, coherent, and squeezed. Note: The expectation values and variances in the tables below use scaled units such that , i.e.,
