“Quantum optics with emitters in waveguides”

Recent progress in nano-fabrication and atomic physics has allowed to couple atoms (or other emitters) to structured waveguides. In this talk I will report on:

  1. a theoretical framework to describe some of those experiments using
    both a master equation and a path integral approach;
  2. the existence of many-photon bound states in the presence of one emitter;
  3. some techniques to prepare multi-photon states in the waveguide using strong coupling and collective effects.
