the wikipedia article http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quantum_coupling suggests a scenario where you have two or multiple quantum oscillators (a lattice of particles maybe or whatever) and coupling describes the interaction at a quantum level (analogous to the classical coupling that is taught in an introductory waves+optics class). however, does this apply still to what they refer to coupling being an interaction between two particles, such as a photon and an electron (i.e. the "absorption" of the photon) increasing it's kinetic energy? if not, where can i find information on this kind of "absorption" type coupling? (i'm an senior undergrad, so whatever level of complication is fine)

This is more, and I think closer to what you're asking, but it's just one paper: http://arxiv.org/ftp/condmat/papers/0606/0606184.pdf

yes, this is very close to what I was referring to, thanks :)
