We consider a system consisting of an atom in the approximation of a harmonic oscillator of frequency $\overline{\ensuremath{\omega}},$ coupled to the scalar potential inside a spherical reflecting cavity of radius R. We use dressed states introduced in a previous publication [Andion, Malbouisson, and Mattos Neto, J. Phys. A 34, 3735 (2001)], which allow a nonperturbative unified description of the atom radiation process, in both cases, of a finite or an arbitrarily large cavity. We perform a… 

Spontaneous Decay of a Dressed Harmonic Oscillator Inside a Spherical Cavity

We consider a complete study of the influence of the cavity size on the spontaneous decay of an atom excited state, roughly approximated by a harmonic oscillator. We confine the oscillator-field

Thermal effects on the stability of excited atoms in cavities

An atom, coupled linearly to an environment, is considered in a harmonic approximation in thermal equilibrium inside a cavity. The environment is modeled by an infinite set of harmonic oscillators.

Non Perturbative Approach to the Time Evolution of a Simple Excited Coupled Quantum System in a Cavity

We consider a system modeled by a harmonic oscillator of frequency ω , coupled to the scalar potential inside a reflecting sphere of radius R. We use dressed states introduced originally in [1] and

The time evolution of an atom coupled to a thermal radiation field

We study the time evolution of an atom suddenly coupled to a thermal radiation field. As a simplified model of the atom-electromagnetic field system we use a system composed by a harmonic oscillator

Time evolution of a superposition of dressed oscillator states in a cavity

Using the formalism of renormalized coordinates and dressed states introduced in previous publications, we perform a nonperturbative study of the time evolution of a superposition of two states, the

The thermalization process of an atom with the thermal radiation field

We study the time evolution of an atom suddenly coupled to a thermal radiation field. As a simplified model of the atom-electromagnetic field system we use a system composed of a harmonic oscillator

Behavior of a bipartite system in a cavity

We study the time evolution of a superposition of product states of two dressed atoms in a spherical cavity in the situations of an arbitrarily large cavity (free space) and a small one. In the
