Abstract

We extend the input-output formalism of quantum optics to analyze few-photon transport in waveguide quantum electrodynamics (QED) systems. We provide explicit analytical derivations for one- and two-photon scattering matrix elements based on the quantum causality relation. The computation scheme can be generalized to N-photon scattering systematically.
