Integrated optical devices will play a central role in the future development of nonlinear quantum photonics. Here we focus on the generation of high-gain nonclassical light within them. Starting from the solid foundation provided by Maxwell's equations, we then move to applications by presenting a unified formulation that allows for a comparison of stimulated and spontaneous experiments in ring resonators and nanophotonic waveguides, and leads directly to the calculation of the quantum states of light generated in high-gain experiments.
