Understanding the non-deterministic behavior of deterministic nonlinear systems has been an implicit dream since Lorenz named it the “butterfly effect”. A prominent example is the hysteresis and bistability of the Duffing oscillator, which in the classical description is attributed to the coexistence of two steady states in a double-well potential. However, this interpretation fails in the quantum-mechanical perspective, where a single unique steady state is allowed in the whole parameter space…

Beyond the standard quantum limit for parametric amplification of broadband signals

The low-noise amplification of weak microwave signals is crucial for countless protocols in quantum information processing. Quantum mechanics sets an ultimate lower limit of half a photon to the

Critical slowing down in circuit quantum electrodynamics

This work investigates the intermediate bistable regime of the generalized Jaynes-Cummings Hamiltonian (GJC), realized by a circuit quantum electrodynamics (cQED) system consisting of a transmon qubit coupled to a microwave cavity.

Quantum limits on noise in linear amplifiers

How much noise does quantum mechanics require a linear amplifier to add to a signal it processes? An analysis of narrow-band amplifiers (single-mode input and output) yields a fundamental theorem for

Quantum theory of optical bistability. I. Nonlinear polarisability model

A quantum treatment of a coherently driven dispersive cavity is given based on a cubic nonlinearity in the polarisability of the internal medium. This system displays bistability and hysteresis in
