1 May 2008 Quantization of coupled waveguided modes progression in integrated photonic devices
Author Affiliations +
In this work is presented a macroscopic quantum-mechanical analysis of quantum light progression in different kinds of integrated photonic waveguide structures with coupled modes, and therefore with validity, for instance, for integrated optical waveguides (conventional integrated optics), photonic crystal waveguides, nano-optical waveguides (plasmonic modes) and so on. The main goal of the work is to give a consistent and explicit derivation of the quantum Momentum operator, and therefore to calculate the corresponding Heisenberg's Equations. Quantum propagation of nonclassical light states are analyzed in different linear and nonlinear integrated devices.
