    From unconventional saturation to optical bistability: exploring the Tavis–Cummings model with a highly dissipative cavity

  • お問合せ


Recent technological advancements have enabled strong light-matter interactions in highly dissipative cavity-emitter systems, which can be well described by the driven-dissipative Tavis–Cummings model. By avoiding the commonly applied adiabatic elimination of the lossy mode, we identified an intriguing correlation between the response of the cavity field to external driving and the emitter number N, which is a signature of the effect we call unconventional saturation [1]. Specifically, we found that (N+1)-photon absorption dominates this regime's cavity response, giving a power-of-2(N+1) dependence on the external drive strength. Thus, the effect shows potential for applications in emitter-number characterization and photon-state engineering. Moreover, it reveals an intriguing precursor to the critical behaviour known as absorptive optical bistability, studied in Tavis-Cummings type systems in the 70s and 80s [2,3,4].
