Abstract: In this thesis, we investigate theoretically the interaction between light and matter in the context of waveguide QED. This recent platform allows to reach strong interaction between atoms and a continuum of bosonic modes propagating in a one-dimensional waveguide, with various experimental implementations to date based on caesium atoms as well as artificial atoms. Our main contributions reported here are a novel method for solving the scattering of N photons on a single atom without computation (arXiv:1603.02804), the finding that a cavity formed of atomic mirrors is able to reproduce cavity quantum electrodynamics, and in particular vacuum Rabi oscillations, when operated in the non-Markovian regime (arXiv:1505.07908), and the quantum study of a diode made of a pair of non-identical atoms which had been previously proposed based on a semi-classical description (arXiv:1510.04494).
