Abstract: In the present thesis the propagation of nonclassical light in structured media is studied with the accounting of various loss mechanisms. First, the characterization of nonclassicality of quantum light being in contact with a thermal bath is given. For the description of nonclassical light propagation through the optical cavities the method of replacement schemes for modeling the loss mechanisms is proposed. Finally, the propagation of light in a semiconductor media with boundaries with account of absorption, dispersion, spatial inhomogeneity and spontaneous emission effects on the nonclassical properties of squeezed light are studied.
