Resonance fluorescence of a two-level atom in a colored vacuum Academic Article uri icon


  • Resonance fluorescence of a driven Jaynes-Cummings system is studied theoretically when the cavity is driven by a classical field of arbitrary strength. In the regime of strong atom-cavity coupling, there occur anomalous resonance peaks at [Formula Presented] etc., with the modified vacuum Rabi frequency [Formula Presented] These new peaks and the observed shift of the vacuum Rabi splitting are to be explained in the language of the quasienergy levels induced dynamically by the strong driving field. In the presence of significant damping the spectrum reflects the photon-number distribution inside the cavity, and particularly, a bimodality of the distribution results in a unique quintuplet resonance fluorescence spectrum. 2000 The American Physical Society.
