  • Engineering a thermal squeezed reservoir by energy-level modulation

    Updated: 2013-01-30 15:00:00
    Author(s): Ephraim Shahmoon and Gershon KurizkiWe show that a thermal reservoir can effectively act as a squeezed reservoir on atoms that are subject to energy-level modulation. For sufficiently fast and strong modulation, for which the rotating-wave approximation is broken, the resulting squeezing persists at long times. These effects are analy...[Phys. Rev.

    Author(s): P. Kómár, S. D. Bennett, K. Stannigel, S. J. M. Habraken, P. Rabl, P. Zoller, and M. D. LukinWe present a detailed theoretical analysis of a weakly driven, multimode optomechanical system, in which two optical modes are strongly and near-resonantly coupled to a single mechanical mode via a three-wave mixing interaction. We calculate one- and two-time intensity correlations of the two optica...[Phys. Rev. A 87, 013839] Published Mon Jan 28, 2013

    Author(s): Guro K. Svendsen, Magnus W. Haakestad, and Johannes Skaar<pThe implications of the Lorentz reciprocity theorem for a scatterer connected to waveguides with arbitrary modes, including degenerate, evanescent, and complex modes, are discussed. In general it turns out that a matrix CS is symmetric, where C is the matrix of generalized orthogonality coefficients...[Phys. Rev. A 87, 013838] Published Mon Jan 28, 2013

    Author(s): Jan Peřina, Jr.Quantum pulsed second-subharmonic generation in a planar waveguide with a small periodic corrugation at the surface is studied. Backscattering of the interacting fields on the corrugation enhances the nonlinear interaction, giving larger values of squeezing. The problem of backscattering is treated ...[Phys. Rev.
