Abstract

The latter 1970-ies witnessed a revival of interest in the nature of light, and new arguments in favour of its quantum structure were put forward. A considerable amount of theoretical work was aimed at the production of so-called photon antibunching, first achieved in experiment by Kimble et al. (1977) who thus succeeded in proving the existence of this unique quantum effect for light of resonance fluorescence from single atoms (Walls, 1979).
