We explore essential factors pertaining to the spatial directivity of quantum radiating source systems (QSSs), encompassing quantum antennas and quantum sensors. Our primary focus is on their capacity to control the emission of photons in specific spatial directions. We present a comprehensive definition of quantum directivity, drawing inspiration from Glauberâ\euro™s photon detection theory. This definition closely parallels the framework of analogous concepts in classical antenna theory. By conducting thorough conceptual and mathematical analysis, we address the challenge of characterizing the directive properties of a general QSS. Essentially, our approach presents a computational model that relies solely on the radiation field operatorâ\euro™s density as input.
