Paper Abstract

In this paper the work on the one-atom-maser or micromaser is reviewed. This maser system is the most fundamental one where a single atom interacts with a single mode of a cavity. With this setup the generation process of non-classical light and other quantum phenomena can be investigated in detail. Furthermore a brief review of the microlaser work will be given where the phenomena of cavity quantum electrodynamics lead to a very low threshold of the laser system.
