Paradigm for Two-Photon Cascade Intensity Correlation Experiments
Quantum electrodynamics is a spectacularly successful theory, nowhere are its successes more numerous than in modern quantum optics. However, fully quantum field theoretical calculations are frequently quite involved, and it is therefore important to have and perfect paradigms which provide physical insight, thus helping us to decide which calculations to do. A case in point is the Welton treatment of the Lamb shift via heuristic “vacuum-fluctuations” arguments.1
