We develop an exact analytical approach to the optical response of a two-level system coupled to a microcavity for arbitrary excitation strengths. The response is determined in terms of the complex amplitudes of transitions between the rungs of the Jaynes-Cummings ladder, explicitly isolating nonlinearities of different orders. Increasing the pulse area of the excitation field, we demonstrate the formation of a quantum Mollow quadruplet (QMQ), quantizing the semiclassical Mollow triplet into a…

Climbing the Jaynes–Cummings ladder and observing its nonlinearity in a cavity QED system

Measuring the photonic degree of freedom of the coupled system, the measurements provide unambiguous spectroscopic evidence for the quantum nature of the resonant atom–field interaction in cavity QED.

Phonon-induced dephasing in quantum-dot–cavity QED

We present a semi-analytic exact solution to the problem of phonon decoherence in a quantum dot embedded in an optical microcavity. Our approach is based on the Trotter decomposition and takes into

Up on the Jaynes-Cummings ladder of a quantum-dot/microcavity system.

In spite of their different natures, light and matter can be unified under the strong-coupling regime, yielding superpositions of the two, referred to as dressed states or polaritons. After initially

Nonlinear response of the vacuum Rabi resonance

The exploration of the Jaynes–Cummings Hamiltonian in a circuit-QED system—where an ‘artificial atom’ made of a superconducting circuit is strongly coupled to a microwave field—provides direct

Coherence dynamics and quantum-to-classical crossover in an exciton–cavity system in the quantum strong coupling regime

Interaction between light and matter generates optical nonlinearities, which are particularly pronounced in the quantum strong coupling regime. When a single bosonic mode couples to a single

Four-wave mixing dynamics of a strongly coupled quantum-dot–microcavity system driven by up to 20 photons

The Jaynes-Cummings (JC) model is at the heart of cavity QED and suitable to describe many different systems. Here, the authors use it to investigate a quantum dot strongly coupled to a micropillar

Microcavity controlled coupling of excitonic qubits

The controlled coherent coupling of spatially separated quantum dots via the photon mode of a solid state microresonator using the strong exciton–photon coupling regime is demonstrated by two-dimensional spectroscopy of the sample's coherent response, a sensitive probe of the coherent coupling.

a Quantum-Mechanical Theory of the Contribution of Excitons to the Complex Dielectric Constant of Crystals.

It is shown that the ordinary semiclassical theory of the absorption of light by exciton states is not completely satisfactory (in contrast to the case of absorption due to interband transitions). A

Strong coupling in a single quantum dot–semiconductor microcavity system

The observation of strong coupling of a single two-level solid-state system with a photon, as realized by a single quantum dot in a semiconductor microcavity, may provide a basis for future applications in quantum information processing or schemes for coherent control.

Resonance fluorescence from a coherently driven semiconductor quantum dot in a cavity.

It is shown that resonance fluorescence, i.e., the resonant emission of a coherently driven two-level system, can be realized with a semiconductor quantum dot and second-order correlation measurements further confirm nonclassical light emission.
