Abstract We calculate the time evolution of a cavity-QED system subject to a time dependent sinusoidal drive. The drive is modulated by an envelope function with the shape of a pulse. The system consists of electrons embedded in a semiconductor nanostructure which is coupled to a single mode quantized electromagnetic field. The electron-electron as well as photon-electron interaction is treated exactly using “exact numerical diagonalization” and the time evolution is calculated by numerically… 

Excitation spectra of a quantum ring embedded in a photon cavity

We explore the response of a quantum ring system coupled to a photon cavity with a single mode when excited by a classical dipole field. We find that the energy oscillates between the electronic and



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

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.

Nonperturbative approach to circuit quantum electrodynamics.

The results demonstrate that including the diamagnetic term in the photon-electron interaction Hamiltonian drastically improves numerical convergence, and convergence with respect to the number of photon states in the joint photon-Electron Fock space basis is fast.

Quantum magneto-electrodynamics of electrons embedded in a photon cavity

We investigate the coupling between a quantized electromagnetic field in a cavity resonator and a Coulomb interacting electronic system in a nanostructure in an external magnetic field. The effects

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

Sub-cycle switch-on of ultrastrong light–matter interaction

This work uses a quantum-well waveguide structure to optically tune light–matter interaction from weak to ultrastrong and turn on maximum coupling within less than one cycle of light, and directly monitors how a coherent photon population converts to cavity polaritons during abrupt switching.

Dynamic Stark effect for the Jaynes-Cummings system.

The quasienergies of a coupled two-level atom and quantized electromagnetic cavity mode with the cavity mode driven by a periodic classical field and shifted Jaynes-Cummings level splittings are calculated.

Comparison of quantum and semiclassical radiation theories with application to the beam maser

This paper has two purposes: 1) to clarify the relationship between the quantum theory of radiation, where the electromagnetic field-expansion coefficients satisfy commutation relations, and the

Signatures of the ultrastrong light-matter coupling regime

In a microcavity, light-matter coupling is quantified by the vacuum-Rabi frequency ?R. When ?R is larger than radiative and nonradiative loss rates, the system eigenstates (polaritons) are linear

Strong coupling of a single photon to a superconducting qubit using circuit quantum electrodynamics

It is shown that the strong coupling regime can be attained in a solid-state system, and the concept of circuit quantum electrodynamics opens many new possibilities for studying the strong interaction of light and matter.
