Intensified antibunching via feedback-induced quantum interference
AbstractWe numerically show that time-delayed coherent feedback controls the statistical output characteristics of driven quantum emitters. Quantum feedback allows us to enhance or suppress a wide range of classical and nonclassical features of the emitted quantum light. As an exemplary quantum system, we use a pumped cavity containing two emitters. By applying phase-selective feedback, we demonstrate that photon antibunching and bunching can be increased for a given set of parameters in orders of magnitude due to intrinsically and externally controllable quantum interferences. Our modeling is based on a fully non-Markovian quantum simulation of a structured photon continuum. We show that an approximative method in the Schrödinger picture allows a very good estimate for quantum feedback induced features for low pump rates.
