Conventional and Unconventional Photon Statistics
The photon statistics emitted by a large variety of light‐matter systems under weak coherent driving can be understood, to lowest order in the driving, in the framework of an admixture of (or
Dynamical blockade in a bosonic Josephson junction using optimal coupling
In this article we use time-dependent Josephson coupling to enhance unconventional photon blockade in a system of two coupled nonlinear bosonic modes which are initially loaded with weakly populated

Tuning photon statistics with coherent fields
Photon correlations, as measured by Glauber's $n\mathrm{th}$-order coherence functions ${g}^{(n)}$, are highly sought to be minimized and/or maximized. In systems that are coherently driven,


25pRB-4 On the origin of strong photon antibunching in weakly nonlinear photonic molecules
In a recent work [Liew and Savona, Phys. Rev. Lett. 104, 183601 (2010)] it was numerically shown that a resonantly driven photonic ''molecule'' consisting of two coupled cavities can exhibit strong
Photon blockade with a four-level quantum emitter coupled to a photonic-crystal nanocavity
We study the photon blockade phenomenon in a nanocavity containing a single four-level quantum emitter. By numerically simulating the second-order autocorrelation function of the intra-cavity field
Tunable photon statistics in weakly nonlinear photonic molecules
In recent studies [Liew et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 104, 183601 (2010); Bamba et al., Phys. Rev. A 83, 021802(R) (2011)], due to destructive interference between different paths for two-photon
Optimal antibunching in passive photonic devices based on coupled nonlinear resonators
We propose the use of weakly nonlinear passive materials for prospective applications in integrated quantum photonics. It is shown that strong enhancement of native optical nonlinearities by
Strong coupling in a single quantum dot–semiconductor microcavity system
The observation of strong coupling of a single two-level solid-state system with a photon, as realized by a single quantum dot in a semiconductor microcavity, may provide a basis for future applications in quantum information processing or schemes for coherent control.
From blockade to transparency: Controllable photon transmission through a circuit-QED system
A strong photon-photon nonlinear interaction is a necessary condition for a photon blockade. Moreover, this nonlinearity can also result in a bistable behavior in the cavityfield. We analyze the
Photon blockade in an optical cavity with one trapped atom
Observations of photon blockade for the light transmitted by an optical cavity containing one trapped atom, in the regime of strong atom–cavity coupling represent an advance over traditional nonlinear optics and laser physics, into a regime with dynamical processes involving atoms and photons taken one-by-one.
Quantum-dot single-photon sources: Prospects for applications in linear optics quantum-information processing
An optical source that produces single-photon pulses on demand has potential applications in linear optics quantum computation, provided that stringent requirements on indistinguishability and
Dispersive photon blockade in a superconducting circuit.
This work differs from previous efforts in that the cavity-qubit excitations retain a photonic nature rather than a hybridization of qubit and photon and provides the needed tolerance to disorder for future condensed matter experiments.
Cavity quantum electrodynamics with a single quantum dot coupled to a photonic molecule
We demonstrate the effects of cavity quantum electrodynamics for a quantum dot coupled to a photonic molecule, consisting of a pair of coupled photonic crystal cavities. We show anti-crossing between
