We analyze a lossy linearized optomechanical system in the red-detuned regime under the rotating wave approximation. This so-called optomechanical state transfer protocol provides effective lossy frequency converter (quantum beam-splitter-like) dynamics where the strength of the coupling between the electromagnetic and mechanical modes is controlled by the optical steady-state amplitude. By restricting to a subspace with no losses, we argue that the transition from mode-hybridization in the… 

Hybrid-Liouvillian formalism connecting exceptional points of non-Hermitian Hamiltonians and Liouvillians via postselection of quantum trajectories

Exceptional points (EPs) are degeneracies of classical and quantum open systems, which are studied in many areas of physics including optics, optoelectronics, plasmonics, and condensed matter

Quantum correlations in $\mathcal{PT}$-symmetric systems

We study the dynamics of correlations in a paradigmatic setup to observe $\mathcal{PT}$-symmetric physics: a pair of coupled oscillators, one subject to a gain one to a loss. Starting from a coherent

Chiral Current Circulation and PT Symmetry in a Trimer of Oscillators

We present a simple quantum theory of a bosonic trimer in a triangular configuration, subject to gain and loss in an open quantum systems approach. Importantly, the coupling constants between each

Emergent PT symmetry in a double-quantum-dot circuit QED setup

Open classical and quantum systems with effective parity-time ($\mathcal{PT}$) symmetry, over the past five years, have shown tremendous promise for advances in lasers, sensing, and non-reciprocal

Lyapunov equation in open quantum systems and non-Hermitian physics

The continuous-time differential Lyapunov equation is widely used in linear optimal control theory, a branch of mathematics and engineering. In quantum physics, it is known to appear in Markovian

Non-Hermitian physics and engineering in silicon photonics

The marriage between the quantum non-Hermiticity and classical silicon platforms not only inspires numerous studies on the fundamental physics but also enriches the potential functionalities of the integrated photonic systems.

Density Operator Approach to Turbulent Flows in Plasma and Atmospheric Fluids

We formulate a statistical wave-mechanical approach to describe dissipation and instabilities in two-dimensional turbulent flows of magnetized plasmas and atmospheric fluids, such as drift and Rossby

Global biodiversity is both declining and being redistributed in response to multiple drivers characterizing the Anthropocene, including synergies between biological invasions and climate change. The



Passive parity-time-symmetry-breaking transitions without exceptional points in dissipative photonic systems [Invited]

Over the past decade, parity-time (PT)-symmetric Hamiltonians have been experimentally realized in classical, optical settings with balanced gain and loss, or in quantum systems with localized loss.

Comparison and unification of non-Hermitian and Lindblad approaches with applications to open quantum optical systems

We compare two approaches to open quantum systems, namely, the non-Hermitian dynamics and the Lindblad master equation. In order to deal with more general dissipative phenomena, we propose the

Nonclassical light at exceptional points of a quantum PT -symmetric two-mode system

A two-mode optical parity-time (PT) symmetric system, with gain and damping, described by a quantum quadratic Hamiltonian with additional small Kerr-like nonlinear terms, is analyzed from the point

Quantum state tomography across the exceptional point in a single dissipative qubit

Open systems with gain and loss, described by non-trace-preserving, non-Hermitian Hamiltonians, have been a subject of intense research recently. The effect of exceptional-point degeneracies on the

This work focuses on the optical PT -symmetric dimer, a two-waveguide coupler where the materials show symmetric effective gain and loss, and provides a review of the linear and nonlinear optical realizations from a symmetry-based point of view.
