Abstract

We provide a quantum description of X waves by considering two different kinds of quantum states of the electromagnetic field whose field amplitude expectation value coincides with a propagation-invariant solution of the Maxwell equation. The difference between the two states is of pure quantum mechanical origin since they are internally entangled and disentangled and can be generated by different linear or nonlinear processes.
