Complete conversion of the single photon frequency in an optical microcavity

  title={Complete conversion of the single photon frequency in an optical microcavity},
  author={Misha Sumetsky},
  journal={arXiv: Optics},
We describe an optical cavity resonantly coupled to N atoms which performs the complete conversion of the single photon frequency in the absence of external driving field. Two states of this cavity couple to two transitions between three atomic levels and two input-output waveguides. The problem is reduced to the consideration of coupled 2N+1 localized and N+1 waveguide collective states of a photon and atoms and solved exactly using the Mahaux-Weidenmuller formalism. The conditions of complete…

Observation of normal-mode splitting for an atom in an optical cavity.

An investigation of the spectral response of a small collection of two-state atoms strongly coupled to the field of a high-finesse optical resonator finds a coupling-induced normal-mode splitting even for one intracavity atom, representing a direct spectroscopic measurement of the so-called vacuum Rabi splitting for the atom-cavity system.

Controllable scattering of a single photon inside a one-dimensional resonator waveguide.

We analyze the coherent transport of a single photon, which propagates in a one-dimensional coupled-resonator waveguide and is scattered by a controllable two-level system located inside one of the

Photon scattering by a three-level emitter in a one-dimensional waveguide

We discuss the scattering of photons from a three-level emitter in a one-dimensional waveguide, where the transport is governed by the interference of spontaneously emitted and directly transmitted

Strong atom–field coupling for Bose–Einstein condensates in an optical cavity on a chip

An experiment combining a fibre-based cavity with atom-chip technology enables single-atom cavity quantum electrodynamics experiments with a simplified set-up and realizes the situation of many atoms in a cavity, each of which is identically and strongly coupled to the cavity mode.

Coherent photon transport from spontaneous emission in one-dimensional waveguides.

It is shown that spontaneous emission can coherently interfere with the continuum modes and gives interesting transport properties and analytical solutions are given.

Efficient single-photon frequency conversion using a Sagnac interferometer

A real-space theoretical approach and a computationally efficient pseudospectral numerical method to invegtigate the full spatiotemporal dynamics of the scattering process and is shown that the efficiency of the frequency-conversion process approaches unity in the ideal case, and is greater than 80% even in the presence of realistic dissipation.

Photon transport in a one-dimensional nanophotonic waveguide QED system

The waveguide quantum electrodynamics (QED) system may have important applications in quantum device and quantum information technology. In this article we review the methods being proposed to

Strongly interacting polaritons in coupled arrays of cavities

Observing quantum phenomena in strongly correlated many-particle systems is difficult because of the short length- and timescales involved. Exerting control over the state of individual elements

Vacuum-field Rabi oscillations of atoms in a cavity

The quantum electrodynamics of an atom in a cavity is reexamined from the view point of the vacuum-field Rabi oscillations. Many features of such oscillations in a single atom as well as in a

Quantum nature of a strongly coupled single quantum dot–cavity system

Observations unequivocally show that quantum information tasks are achievable in solid-state cavity QED by observing quantum correlations in photoluminescence from a photonic crystal nanocavity interacting with one, and only one, quantum dot located precisely at the cavity electric field maximum.
