Single Photons and Nonclassical Light in Tight
Binding Lattice Models
Dr. G. S. Agarwal
Department of Physics
Oklahoma State University

It is now recognized that arrays of classical waveguides are suitable elements for realizing a number of condensed matter and quantum optical effects like Bloch oscillations, Anderson localization, Hong-Ou-Mandel two photon interference, entanglement, quantum walks. Since various interactions can be controlled by design of the array such structures are especially useful to study physical effects in a region previously unrealized. This talk would focus on some of these developments with special emphasis on quantum fields in such structures.
