The Free Electron Gas in Cavity Quantum Electrodynamics

  title={The Free Electron Gas in Cavity Quantum Electrodynamics},

  journal={arXiv: Quantum Physics},
Cavity mediated modification of material properties and phenomena is a novel research field largely motivated by the experimental advances in strong light-matter interactions. Despite this progress, exact solutions for extended systems strongly coupled to the photon field are not available, and both theory and experiments rely mainly on finite-system models. Therefore a paradigmatic example of an exactly solvable extended system in a cavity becomes highly desireable. To fill this gap we revisit… Expand

Making ab initio QED functional(s): Nonperturbative and photon-free effective frameworks for strong light–matter coupling
This work provides a nonperturbative photon-free formulation of quantum electrodynamics (QED) in the long-wavelength limit, which is formulated solely on the matter Hilbert space and can serve as an accurate starting point for such ab initio methods. Expand
Photon Condensation and Enhanced Magnetism in Cavity QED.
A system of magnetic molecules coupled to microwave cavities (LC resonators) undergoes the equilibrium superradiant phase transition and a transmission experiment is shown to resolve the transition, measuring the quantum electrodynamical control of magnetism. Expand

Atoms and molecules in cavities, from weak to strong coupling in quantum-electrodynamics (QED) chemistry
This work provides an overview of how well-established concepts in the fields of quantum chemistry and material sciences have to be adapted when the quantum nature of light becomes important in correlated matter–photon problems and which effects can be anticipated. Expand

The presented framework leads to a shift in paradigm by highlighting how electronically excited states arise as a modification of the photon field and that experimentally observed effects are always due to a complex interplay between light and matter. Expand
Cavity quantum-electrodynamical polaritonically enhanced electron-phonon coupling and its influence on superconductivity
It is found that through highly polarizable dipolar phonons, large cavity-enhanced electron-phonon couplings are possible, but superconductivity is not enhanced for the forward-scattering pairing mechanism due to the interplay between coupling enhancement and mode softening. Expand
Ultrastrong Coupling of the Cyclotron Transition of a 2D Electron Gas to a THz Metamaterial
