In the light of the Newton–Wigner–Wightman theorem of localizability question, we have proposed before a typical generation mechanism of effective mass for photons to be localized in the form of polaritons owing to photon-media interactions. In this paper, the general essence of this example model is extracted in such a form as quantum field ontology associated with the eventualization principle, which enables us to explain the mutual relations, back and forth, between quantum fields and… 
Dressed photons from the viewpoint of photon localization: the entrance to the off-shell science
In the present paper, a new aspect of the interplay is examined between mathematical–physical arguments and light–matter fusion technologies in terms of the concept of “effective mass”, starting from
Explanation of Photon Navigation in the Mach-Zehnder Interferometer
Photons in interferometers manifest the functional ability to simultaneously navigate both paths through the device, but eventually appear at only one outlet. How this relates to the physical
Static Schwinger-Level Electric Field Nonlinearities and Their Significance to Photons and Photon Entanglement
In this work, we postulate that Schwinger’s threshold for a dynamic electric field intensity to induce spatial nonlinearity is a special case and, more generally, it is the threshold field for both
A photon model based upon chaos produced by static, Schwinger-level electric field nonlinearities that satisfies all first-order properties
In this work we postulate that Schwinger's threshold for a dynamic electric field intensity to induce spatial nonlinearity is a special case and, more generally, it is the threshold field for both
Limits for realizing single photons
Perfect single photons cannot be generated on demand due to their infinite tails. To quantify how close realizable states can be to some target single photon, we argue that there are two natural but
Static Schwinger-level threshold electric field nonlinearities and their significance to photons and chaos.
In this work we postulate that Schwinger's threshold for a dynamic electric field intensity to induce spatial nonlinearity is a special case and, more generally, it is the threshold field for both

From the very beginning of quantum mechanics, the notion of the position of a particle has been much discussed. In the nonrelativistic case, the proof of the equivalence of matrix and wave mechanics,

This textbook gives a comprehensive account of local quantum physics understood as the synthesis of quantum theory with the principle of locality. Centered on the algebraic approach, it describes

It is shown that the ordinary semiclassical theory of the absorption of light by exciton states is not completely satisfactory (in contrast to the case of absorption due to interband transitions). A
Spatially structured photons that travel in free space slower than the speed of light
TLDR
This work highlights that, even in free space, the invariance of the speed of light only applies to plane waves, and shows a reduction in the group velocity of photons in both a Bessel beam and photons in a focused Gaussian beam.

Resolution of the abraham-minkowski dilemma.
TLDR
It is shown that both the Abraham and Minkowski forms of the momentum density are correct, with the former being the kinetic momentum and the latter the canonical momentum.
