Optical Bistability in a Low Photon-Density Regime

26 Apr 2018 Shirai Tatsuhiko Todo Synge de Raedt Hans Miyashita Seiji

We give a microscopic description of the optical bistability, where the transmission coefficient has two different values as a function of input light intensity, and the system exhibits a discontinuous jump with a hysteresis loop. We developed an efficient numerical algorithm to treat the quantum master equation for hybridized systems of many photons and a large number of two-level atoms... (read more)
