Although problems in optical guided wave systems are usually described simply by using the classical Maxwell equations, there are cases in which a quantum mechanical treatment is necessary. Three purely quantum phenomena that have no classical analogues are known: photon antibunching; sub-Poissonian photon statistics; and squeezing of optical fields. If problems connected with these phenomena or with the evolution of photon statistics are to be dealt with, a quantum mechanical treatment must be used.
