In photonic circuits photons play the dominant role and they transfer the optical data. With the growth of technology, a new area started to grow as photonic crystals which now play an important role in designing and manufacturing compact devices ...

What the heck is a photon, anyway? You need to understand Maxwell's equations and quantum mechanics, and to understand how they fit together. This text won't teach you quantum electrodynamics. But they'll give you a nudge in the right direction.

These notes introduce some of the basic mathematical and physical tools necessary for theoretical investigations into the thermodynamics properties of light in cavities. It will also be useful for the research teams entering this field of science.

Optics and interferometry with matter waves is the art of coherently manipulating the translational motion of particles like atoms. Coherent atom optics is an extension of techniques that were developed for manipulating internal quantum states.
