Paper Abstract

In an experimental demonstration, we've observed some kinds of polarization properties in Optical Diffraction Grating. Trying to explain such observation, we are made to travel back into basic optics principles. We can see that neither classical theory nor mathematical formalism of Quantum- mechanics can deliver an enough bright visual perception about what's happening in atomic-scales causes polarization. But Quantum-Photonics will be able to describe the gradual and partial polarization effects in submicron scales. It consists of both physical description and mathematical formalism for optical phenomena in atomic scales based on particle nature of light.
