Anisotropic nanophotonic structures can couple the levels of a quantum emitter through the quantum interference effect. In this paper we study the coupling of quantum emitters excited states through the modes of a fully anisotropic structure: a structure for which all directions are physically nonequivalent. We consider an anisotropic metasurface as an illustrative example of such a structure. We point out a novel degree of freedom in controlling the temporal dynamics and spectral profiles of…

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.

Metasurface-Enabled Remote Quantum Interference.

This work theoretically demonstrate a strong AQV over macroscopic distances enabled by a judiciously designed array of subwavelength-scale nanoantennas-a metasurface to achieve strong anisotropy in the decay rate of a quantum emitter located over distances of hundreds of wavelengths.

Quantum state-controlled directional spontaneous emission of photons into a nanophotonic waveguide

The directional spontaneous emission of photons by laser-trapped caesium atoms into an optical nanofibre is demonstrated and the spontaneous emission into the counter-propagating guided modes from symmetric to strongly asymmetric, where more than % of the optical power is launched into one or the other direction.

E engineered directional photonic reservoirs could lead to the development of complex quantum networks that, for example, could simulate novel classes of quantum many-body systems.

In the Mollow triplet regime, the emitted spectra from the driven dipoles are explored and it is shown how a nonpumped dipole can take on the form of a spectral triplet, quintuplet, or a singlet, which has applications for producing subnatural linewidth single photons and more easily accessing regimes of high-field quantum optics and cavity-QED.
