Abstract

A system of coupled quantum harmonic oscillators (QHOs) whose Hamiltonian conserves photon number begets a one-photon correspondence principle (OPCoP), which allows solutions to the classical linear Maxwell equations for propagation in matter to be reinterpreted as a precise description of a one-photon state. We state, prove, and explore the OPCoP, whereby the vast extant body of linear, sourceless optical waveguide theory [Optical Waveguide Theory (Chapman & Hall, 1983)] can be applied to the exact analysis of one-photon propagation in optical fibers.
