We adapt the Quantum Monte Carlo method to the cascaded formalism of quantum optics, allowing us to simulate the emission of photons of known energy. Statistical processing of the photon clicks thus collected agrees with the theory of frequency-resolved photon correlations, extending the range of applications based on correlations of photons of prescribed energy, in particular those of a photon-counting character. We apply the technique to autocorrelations of photon streams from a two-level… 

Two-photon emission in detuned resonance fluorescence

. We discuss two-photon correlations from the side peaks that are formed when a two-level system emitter is driven coherently, with a detuning between the driving source and the emitter

Perturbation approach for computing frequency- and time-resolved photon correlation functions

We propose an alternative formulation of the sensor method presented in [Phys. Rev. Lett 109, 183601 (2012)] for the calculation of frequency-filtered and time-resolved photon correlations. Our

Frequency-resolved photon correlations in cavity optomechanics

Frequency-resolved photon correlations have proven to be a useful resource to unveil nonlinearities hidden in standard observables such as the spectrum or the standard (color-blind) photon

Asymmetric coupling between two quantum emitters

We study a prototypical model of two coupled two-level systems, where the competition between coherent and dissipative coupling gives rise to a rich phenomenology. In particular, we analyze the case

Quasichiral Interactions between Quantum Emitters at the Nanoscale.

A combined classical and quantum electrodynamics description of the coupling between two circularly polarized quantum emitters held above a metal surface supporting surface plasmons is presented, revealing a quasichiral regime in which its quantum optical properties are governed by its subradiant state.

Loss of antibunching

We describe some of the main external mechanisms that lead to a loss of antibunching, i.e., that spoil the character of a given quantum light to deliver its photons separated the ones from the

Impact of detuning and dephasing on a laser-corrected subnatural-linewidth single-photon source

The elastic scattering peak of a resonantly driven two-level system has been argued to provide narrow-linewidth antibunched photons. Although independent measurements of spectral width on the one

Joint subnatural-linewidth and single-photon emission from resonance fluorescence

Resonance fluorescence—the light emitted when exciting resonantly a two-level system—is a popular quantum source as it seems to inherit its spectral properties from the driving laser and its

Roadmap on quantum light spectroscopy

Conventional spectroscopy uses classical light to detect matter properties through the variation of its response with frequencies or time delays. Quantum light opens up new avenues for spectroscopy

Theory of frequency-filtered and time-resolved N-photon correlations.

The power of the formalism is illustrated with the example of the Jaynes-Cummings model, by showing how higher order photon correlations can bring new insights into the dynamics of open quantum systems.

Photon-Statistics Excitation Spectroscopy of a Quantum-Dot Micropillar Laser.

The results under coherent and pseudothermal excitation reveal that a description of the laser properties in terms of mean input photon numbers is not sufficient and it is demonstrated that the micropillar acts as a superthermal light source when operated close to its threshold.

Monte Carlo wave-function method in quantum optics

We present a wave-function approach to the study of the evolution of a small system when it is coupled to a large reservoir. Fluctuations and dissipation originate in this approach from quantum jumps

Two-color photon correlations of the light scattered by a quantum dot

Two-color second-order correlations of the light scattered near-resonantly by a quantum dot were measured by means of spectrally filtered coincidence detection. The effects of filter frequency and

Quantum correlation among photons from a single quantum dot at room temperature

This result proves that a single quantum dot acts like an artificial atom, with a discrete anharmonic spectrum, and finds the photon-emission events from a cluster of several dots to be uncorrelated.

Enhanced two-photon emission from a dressed biexciton

Radiative two-photon cascades from biexcitons in semiconductor quantum dots under resonant two-photon excitation are promising candidates for the generation of photon pairs. In this work, we propose

Monte Carlo wavefunctions in quantum optics

In this paper we present a review of the Monte Carlo wavefunction method. We discuss some aspects of its application in numerical simulations, and we comment on some of its relations to the

Using recently developed quantum wave function techniques, we have performed a simulation of 85 Rb atoms in a one-dimensional optical molasses, formed from counterpropagating laser beams with

Monte Carlo simulation of master equations in quantum optics for vacuum, thermal, and squeezed reservoirs.

Wave-function simulation of themasterequation in terms of quantum jumps is illustrated for vacuum, thermal, and squeezed reservoirs and a strongly coupled atom-cavity system driven by termal light is discussed.

Distilling one, two and entangled pairs of photons from a quantum dot with cavity QED effects and spectral filtering

A quantum dot can be used as a source of one- and two-photon states and of polarization entangled photon pairs. The emission of such states is investigated here from the point of view of
