Abstract

Author(s): Charles N. Christensen, Jake Iles-Smith, Torkil S. Petersen, Jesper Mørk, and Dara P. S. McCutcheon We investigate the suppression of spontaneous emission from a driven three-level system embedded in an optical cavity via a manifestation of the quantum Zeno effect. Strong resonant coupling of the lower two levels to an external optical field results in a decrease of the decay rate of the third upp... [Phys. Rev. A 97, 063807] Published Wed Jun 06, 2018
