Abstract

We discuss the concept of a single-photon state together with how they are generated, measured and interact with linear and nonlinear systems. In particular, we consider how a single-photon state interacts with an opto-mechanical system: an optical cavity with a moving mirror and how such states can...

Abstract: We discuss the concept of a single-photon state together with how they are generated, measured and interact with linear and nonlinear systems. In particular, we consider how a single-photon state interacts with an opto-mechanical system: an optical cavity with a moving mirror and how such states can be used as a measurement probe for the mechanical degrees of freedom. We conclude with a discussion of how single-photon states are modified in a gravitational field due to the red-shift.
