We present a three-dimensional quantum theory of light scattering, absorption, and emission in arbitrary planar dielectric systems. The theory is based on a scheme for quantization of the electromagnetic field in dispersive and lossy arbitrary planar dielectrics that takes explicitly into account the finite extent of the medium. We present general quantum-optical input-output relations of the output TE and TM photon operators to the corresponding input photon operators and to the reservoir noise operators. These three-dimensional input-output relations are uniquely determined by knowledge of the classical light modes of the planar dielectric structure.
