Photon Correlations from the Mollow Triplet

  title={Photon Correlations from the Mollow Triplet},

  journal={Laser \& Photonics Reviews},
Photon correlations between the photoluminescence peaks of the Mollow triplet have been known for a long time, and recently hailed as a resource for heralded single-photon sources. Here, we provide the full picture of photon-correlations at all orders (we deal explicitly with up to four photons) and with no restriction to the peculiar frequency windows that enclose the peaks. We show that a rich multi-photon physics lies between the peaks, due to transitions involving virtual photons, and… Expand

The Quantum Monte Carlo method is adapted to the cascaded formalism of quantum optics, allowing us to simulate the emission of photons of known energy, and the direct manifestation of leapfrog processes in producing an increased rate of two-photon emission events is demonstrated. Expand
Multifold wave-particle quantum correlations in strongly correlated three-photon emissions from filtered resonance fluorescence.
New forms of the criterion of nonclassicality for non-Gaussian radiation are proposed by introducing intensity-dual quadrature correlation functions, which contain the information about strongly correlated three-photon emissions of the Mollow triplet. Expand

Observation of Mollow Triplets with Tunable Interactions in Double Lambda Systems of Individual Hole Spins.
High quality positively charged quantum dots embedded in a planar microcavity that enable enhanced light-matter interactions are grown and it is demonstrated that the interaction that gives rise to the anticrossings can be controlled in strength by tuning the polarization of the resonant laser drive.

This work studies the photon correlations between the output of two spectral filters set within the fluorescence triplet of a two-state atom, finding positive (bunching) correlations arise when the two filters are set at the same frequency, and also when they are positioned symmetrically at opposite sides of the driving frequency.
