We will study phenomena of relativistic nature or resemblance in condensed matter. We will analyze the behavior of photons, alone or in entangled pairs, as they propagate through the vacuum or a dieletric medium using a photon wave function formalism. We shall also study the problem of photon transmission through a slab of superconducting material. At least, we will study the problem of electronic self-interaction of the Dirac Fermions on Graphene, through the substract into which the material is found. (AU)
