Books for Quantum & Light Physics

Recommended Posts

Hello all, as the title says i'm in search for some books about Quantum Physics (Computing) and physics about light. I'm experienced in software engineering but never worked on the fields of physics before.

 

Thank you

What's your maths like?

QED by Feynman is brilliant and accessible. 

If you want to follow the maths I'd recommend quantum mechanics by Alastair I. M. Rae, quite short as text books go but very good.
