# Single-particle model of a strongly driven, dense, nanoscale quantum ensemble

@article{DiLoreto2018SingleparticleMO, title={Single-particle model of a strongly driven, dense, nanoscale quantum ensemble}, author={Christopher DiLoreto and Chitra Rangan}, journal={Physical Review A}, year={2018}, volume={97}, pages={013812} }

We study the effects of interatomic interactions on the quantum dynamics of a dense, nanoscale, atomic ensemble driven by a strong electromagnetic field. We use a self-consistent, mean-field technique based on the pseudo-spectral time-domain method, and a full, three-directional basis to solve the coupled Maxwell-Liouville equations. We find that interatomic interactions generate a decoherence in the state of an ensemble on a much faster timescale than the excited state lifetime of individual…

In a homogeneously broadened atomic sample there is no overt Lorentz-Lorenz local field shift of the resonance, nor a collective Lamb shift, but the addition of inhomogeneous broadening restores the usual mean-field phenomenology.
