An analysis of some aspects of photon transport through cavities and emitters embedded in a one-dimensional geometries is presented. The concept of photon blockade is defined for few-photon states interacting with a single two-level atom and the strength of achievable blockade is calculated in this setting. A brief review of some promising schemes for achieving photon blockade from the literature is also provided. The conflict between linear and nonlinear optical processes is studied for a novel version of the famous Hong-Ou-Mandel effect in a photonic waveguide with a side-coupled two-level emitter.
