Waveguide QED describes the strong coupling between a two (or more)-level system and an electromagnetic field confined in a waveguide with some transverse field modes which provide coherent transport of single photon with multiple channels for quantum interference. There will emerge dramatic quantum optics effects, such as Fano-Feshbach resonances in guiding modes. Using the two-level system as an active controller, the waveguide QED system can behave as a single-photon device (quantum switch or single transistor) for quantum information processing and quantum networks.
In this talk, first I will give a brief review of the fundamental quantum physics of waveguide QED and the resonance characteristics of single photon scattering due to the existence of multiple channels. I also show the approaches of quantum field theory and scattering theory, developed recently by my group, to predict novel quantum resonance effects in the waveguide QED.
