Photodetection is a process in which an incident field induces a polarization current in the detector. The interaction of the field with this induced current excites an electron in the detector from a localized bound state to a state in which the electron freely propagates and can be classically amplified and detected. The induced current can interact not only with the applied field, but also with all of the initially unpopulated vacuum modes. This interaction with the vacuum modes is assumed…

Fundamentals of Photonics

Although the study of light began in ancient Greece in 500 BC, very few new contributions were proposed until Galileo (born in 1564), Willebrord Snell van Royen and Descartes (born in 1621)
