We extend recently developed schemes for field quantization in absorbing dielectric media with local susceptibilities to dielectric systems described by a non local susceptibility. The method is applied to the cases of a semiconductor quantum well embedded in infinite barriers and embedded in planar semiconductor microcavities. As an application of the formalism, we analyze the effects of the propagation through a semiconductor microcavity (MC) on a continuous-mode squeezed coherent state. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.
