Non-equilibrium dynamics of the Dicke model for mesoscopic aggregates : signatures of superradiance

In the dissipative quantum dynamics of a mesoscopic aggregate of excited two level systems (atoms) coupled to a single resonance mode of a cavity, two physical phenomena associated with superradiance appear. A pronounced emission peak on short time scales is related to the known superradiant burst of excited atoms cooperatively radiating into free space. It… CONTINUE READING
