We study the nonreciprocal transmission and the fast-slow light effects in a cavity optomechanical system, in which the cavity supports a clockwise and a counter-clockwise circulating optical mode; both the modes are driven simultaneously by a strong pump field and a weak signal field. We find that the system reveals a nonreciprocal transmission of the signal fields when the intrinsic photon loss of the cavity is equal to the external coupling loss of the cavity. However, when the intrinsic…

Optomechanically Induced Transparency and Slow–Fast Light Effect in Hybrid Cavity Optomechanical Systems
We theoretically investigate the optomechanically induced transparency (OMIT) phenomenon and the fast and slow light effects of a four-mode optomechanical system with the Kerr medium. The
Optical nonreciprocal response and conversion in a Tavis-Cummings coupling optomechanical system
Compared with the conventional optomechanical systems, the Tavis-Cummings coupling optomechical system exhibits richer nonreciprocal conversion phenomena among the optical mode, mechanical mode, and dopant mode, which provide a new applicable way of achieving the phonon-photon transducer and the optomechamical circulator in future practice.
Nonreciprocal conventional photon blockade in driven dissipative atom-cavity.
It is shown that the single-photon blockade can be generated by driving the spinning resonator from one side, while photon-induced tunneling is driven by the other side with the same driving strength.

Optical nonreciprocity and slow light in coupled spinning optomechanical resonators.
C coupled resonators can exhibit distinct transmission features, can generate negative group delays (slow as well as fast light) and offer additional control of the probe light transmission as compared to the case of a single spinning resonator.
