Transport and quantum walk of nonclassical light in coupled waveguides Academic Article uri icon


  • We study the transport and quantum walk of nonclassical light in an array of coupled waveguides which have properties like very low decoherence and thus making them ideal for storage of quantum information. We show how squeezing gets turned over from one waveguide to another. We further show how input nonclassical light can generate entanglement among different waveguides. Our results, which are valid for an arbitrary number of waveguides, involve both first quantization due to array structure and second quantization due to the quantum nature of fields and can also be used to discuss the Talbot effect in the quantum regime. 2008 The American Physical Society.
