Steady states in cavity QED due to incoherent pumping. Academic Article uri icon


  • It is shown that strong competition between the absorption and emission of the cavity photons and the incoherent processes like atomic spontaneous emission and cavity decay effects result in new nonequilibrium states in cavity quantum electrodynamics. Such states can exhibit saturation, nonclassical character, and strong atom-cavity correlation. 1990 The American Physical Society.
