Phase-space optics, one photon at a time

Harrison H. Barrett, Luca Caucci, Kyle J. Myers

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


The relationship between the Wigner Distribution Function and the spectral photon radiance is discussed for both physical optics and quantum optics. Computational methods and applications are surveyed, and photon-by-photon phase-space imagers are introduced.
