First-order superradiant phase transitions in a multiqubit cavity system.

Abstract

We predict the existence of novel first-order phase transitions in a general class of multiqubit cavity systems. Apart from atomic systems, the associated superradiant phase transition should be observable in a variety of solid-state experimental systems, including the technologically important case of interacting quantum dots coupled to an optical cavity mode.
