The electromagnetic phenomena of reflection and refraction at a dielectric surface will be treated by an alternative Schrodinger type quantum mechanical method. Thus, a new and simple deduction of Fresnel’s formulas is given, without any appeal to Maxwell’s equations, by using the concept of photon potential (7) associated to the refractive index of the

THE PHOTON WAVE FUNCTION AND THE FRESNEL FORMULAS

Electromagnetic phenomena can be either classically described with the help of Maxwell's equations, or by the methods of quantum computing and Schrodinger equation. In the present paper we will

Tunneling mechanism of light transmission through metallic films.

A mechanism of light transmission through metallic films is proposed, assisted by tunneling between resonating buried dielectric inclusions, and it is proved to be limited only by absorption.

Quantum description of microwave passive circuits

The paper gives a formal analogy between the distribution of the electromagnetic field in a wave guide and microwave cavities and the quantum-mechanical probabilities distribution. We show that the

The reinterpretation of wave mechanics

The author begins by recalling how he was led in 1923–24 to the ideas of wave mechanics in generalizing the ideas of Einstein's theory of light quanta. He made himself at that time a concrete

Quantum interference and the quantum potential

SummaryWe re-examine the notion of the quantum potential introduced by the Broglie and Bohm and calculate its explicit form in the case of the two-slit interference experiment. We also calculate the

Single-photon tunneling via localized surface plasmons.

Strong evidence of a single-photon tunneling effect, a direct analog of single-electron tunneling, has been obtained in the measurements of light tunneling through individual subwavelength pinholes
