Description Proca equations foresee the possibility of a nonzero photon mass. In this context of electrodynamics of finite range, the approaches used to determine the mass of the photon, or its upper limits, are traditionally based on classical methods. In this paper, we present a brief overview of the latest experimental methods that are based on a quantum approach. It is shown that quantum approaches can compete and even surpass traditional methods.
Las ecuaciones de Proca prevén la posibilidad de una masa no nula del fotón. En este contexto de la electrodinámica de rango finito, los enfoques utilizados para determinar la masa del fotón, o sus límites superiores, están basados tradicionalmente en métodos clásicos. En este trabajo, se presenta una breve reseña de métodos experimentales más recientes que se basan en un enfoque cuántico. Se muestra que los enfoques cuánticos pueden competir y hasta superar los métodos clásicos.
