The interaction of matter with quantum light leads to phenomena which cannot be explained by semiclassical approaches. Of particular interest are states with broad photon number distributions which allow processes with high-order Fock states. Here, we analyze a Jaynes-Cummings-type model with three electronic levels which is excited by quantum light. As quantum light we consider coherent and squeezed states. In our simulations we include several loss mechanisms, namely, dephasing, cavity, and… 
Steady states of Λ-type three-level systems excited by quantum light with various photon statistics in lossy cavities
The interaction between quantum light and matter is being intensively studied for systems that are enclosed in high-Q cavities which strongly enhance the light–matter coupling. Cavities with low
Theoretical analysis of correlations between two quantum fields exciting a three-level system using the cluster-expansion approach
We consider an electronic three-level system with two dipole-allowed transitions that are resonantly excited with two single-mode quantum fields, respectively. The interaction is described with a
Transfer of correlations from photons to electron excitations and currents induced in semiconductor quantum wells by non-classical twisted light
The obtained results make possible to register the correlated electrons experimentally and to implement quantum information and nanoelectronics circuits in nanosystems using the found azimuthal and radial electron entanglement.
Steady states of $\Lambda$-type three-level systems excited by quantum light in lossy cavities
The interaction between quantum light and matter is being intensively studied for systems that are enclosed in high-Q cavities which strongly enhance the light-matter coupling. However, for many


Electromagnetically induced transparency : Optics in coherent media
Coherent preparation by laser light of quantum states of atoms and molecules can lead to quantum interference in the amplitudes of optical transitions. In this way the optical properties of a medium
Optimal storage of a single photon by a single intra-cavity atom
We theoretically analyse the efficiency of a quantum memory for single photons. The photons propagate along a transmission line and impinge on one of the mirrors of a high-finesse cavity. The quantum
Single microwave-photon detector using an artificial Λ-type three-level system
This work demonstrates the detection of a single microwave photon propagating through a waveguide using an impedance-matched artificial Λ system comprising the dressed states of a driven superconducting qubit coupled to a microwave resonator.
Quantum repeaters based on atomic ensembles and linear optics
The theoretical and experimental status quo of this very active field of quantum repeater protocols is reviewed, and the potentials of different approaches are compared quantitatively, with a focus on the most immediate goal of outperforming the direct transmission of photons.
Classification of dark states in multilevel dissipative systems
Dark states are eigenstates or steady states of a system that are decoupled from the radiation. Their use, along with associated techniques such as stimulated Raman adiabatic passage, has extended
Terahertz excitations of lambda systems in a semiconductor microcavity
Recent experiment-theory investigations have demonstrated that the 2p-exciton state and the polariton resonances of a semiconductor quantum-well (QW) microcavity form a lambda (Λ) system where a
Coherent control of interaction and entanglement of a Rydberg atom with few photons
The interaction of a model Rydberg atom with a single photon quantum field is investigated. The atom is considered in the model of 'several bound states+continuum', so that the field-induced
Coherent population transfer among quantum states of atoms and molecules
The authors discuss the technique of stimulated Raman adiabatic passage (STIRAP), a method of using partially overlapping pulses (from pump and Stokes lasers) to produce complete population transfer
High-Resolution Two-Dimensional Optical Spectroscopy of Electron Spins
Multidimensional coherent optical spectroscopy is one of the most powerful tools for investigating complex quantum mechanical systems. While it was conceived decades ago in magnetic resonance
