We investigate a double quantum dot coupled to a transmission line resonator. By driving a current through the double dot, a population inversion between the dot levels can be created, and a lasing state of the radiation field is generated within a sharp resonance window. The transport current correlates with the lasing state. The sharp resonance condition allows for resolving small differences in the dot properties. Dissipative processes in the quantum dots and their effect on the lasing and… 
Theory of interactions between cavity photons induced by a mesoscopic circuit
We use a quantum path integral approach to describe the behavior of a microwave cavity coupled to a dissipative mesoscopic circuit. We integrate out the mesoscopic electronic degrees of freedom to
Cavity QED with hybrid nanocircuits: from atomic-like physics to condensed matter phenomena
This work presents the experimental state of the art of mesoscopic QED and its theoretical description, and uses cavity photons to reveal the dynamics of electron tunneling between a nanoconductor and fermionic reservoirs.
Probing electron-phonon interactions in the charge-photon dynamics of cavity-coupled double quantum dots
Electron-phonon coupling is known to play an important role in the charge dynamics of semiconductor quantum dots. Here we explore its role in the combined charge-photon dynamics of cavity-coupled
Complementarity and phases in SU(3)
Phase operators and phase states are introduced for irreducible representations of the Lie algebra using a polar decomposition of ladder operators. In contradistinction with , it is found that the

Motivated by recent experiments, we analyse the phonon-assisted steady-state gain of a microwave field driving a double quantum-dot in a resonator. We apply the results of our companion paper, which


Lasing and transport in a quantum-dot resonator circuit
We study a double quantum-dot system coherently coupled to an electromagnetic resonator. A current through the dot system can create a population inversion in the dot levels and, within a narrow
Characterization of a microwave frequency resonator via a nearby quantum dot
We present measurements of a hybrid system consisting of a microwave transmission-line resonator and a lateral quantum dot defined on a GaAs heterostructure. The two subsystems are separately
Dipole coupling of a double quantum dot to a microwave resonator.
We demonstrate the realization of a hybrid solid-state quantum device, in which a semiconductor double quantum dot is dipole coupled to the microwave field of a superconducting coplanar waveguide

Lasing without inversion in circuit quantum electrodynamics.
The photon generation in a transmission line oscillator coupled to a driven qubit in the presence of a dissipative electromagnetic environment is studied to show that the circuit can also exhibit the effect of "lasing without inversion", similar to the recoil effect predicted for atomic systems.
Lasing, trapping states, and multistability in a circuit quantum electrodynamical analog of a single-atom injection maser
We study a superconducting single-electron transistor (SSET) which is coupled to a LC oscillator via the phase difference across one of the Josephson junctions. This leads to a strongly anharmonic
Single-qubit lasing in the strong-coupling regime
Motivated by recent "circuit QED" experiments we study the lasing transition and spectral properties of single-qubit lasers. In the strong coupling, low-temperature regime, quantum fluctuations
Stationary inversion of a two level system coupled to an off-resonant cavity with strong dissipation.
We present an off-resonant excitation scheme that realizes pronounced stationary inversion in a two level system. The created inversion exploits a cavity-assisted two-photon resonance to enhance the
Single-qubit lasing and cooling at the Rabi frequency.
For a superconducting qubit driven to perform Rabi oscillations and coupled to a slow electromagnetic or nanomechanical oscillator we describe previously unexplored quantum optics effects. When the
