Exact finite temperature quantum statistics of single atom electrodynamics in a cavity of arbitrary Q Academic Article uri icon


  • We report a complete and exact analysis of the steady-state physical properties characterising a single radiating atom in a cavity of arbitrary Q. Solutions are in terms of multitime correlation functions and no approximation is made in terms of Q, temperature, or strength of field-atom coupling g. Results are import also to fundamental concepts of statistical mechanics such as adiabatic following and Markov approximations. 1986.
