Electromagnetic field expectations as measures of photon localization

22 Feb 2020 Hoffmann Scott E.

The questions of whether a photon can be localized in an arbitrarily small volume and what is the allowable strength of that localization (the decrease with distance of the functional form) are questions of current interest. We propose a measure of localization for the single photon that is the expectation values of the electromagnetic field strength components in a coherent wavepacket state of mean photon number unity...
