Intensity-intensity correlations for the micromaser: Spectral and antibunching characteristics. Academic Article uri icon


  • We report results on different types of two-photon correlations for the micromaser field. We calculate these two-time correlations using the master equation for the micromaser field. We also present detailed results on the behavior of the eigenvalues of the Liouville operator for a range of excitation conditions and cavity parameters. We demonstrate the antibunching and the multiple-exponential decay of the micromaser field. We also discuss probing of the two-photon correlations. 1994 The American Physical Society.
