  1. Abstract

    We apply the Migdal–Eliashberg theory of superconductivity to heavy-fermion and mixed valence materials. Specifically, we extend the Anderson lattice model to a case when there exists a strong coupling between itinerant electrons and lattice vibrations. Using the saddle-point approximation, we derive a set of coupled nonlinear equations which describe competition between the crossover to a heavy-fermion or mixed-valence regimes and conventional superconductivity. We find that superconductivity at strong coupling emerges on par with the development of the many-body coherence in a Kondo lattice. Superconductivity is gradually suppressed with the onset of the Kondo screening and for strong electron-phonon coupling the Kondo screening exhibits a characteristic re-entrant behavior. Even though for both weak and strong coupling limits the suppression of superconductivity is weaker in the mixed-valence regime compared to the local moment one, superconducting critical temperature still remains nonzero. In the weak coupling limit the onset of the many body coherence develops gradually, in the strong coupling limit it emerges abruptly in the mixed valence regime while in the local moment regime thef-electrons remain effectively decoupled from the conduction electrons. Possibility of experimental realization of these effects in Ce-based compounds is also discussed.

    A bstract We develop a new technique for computing a class of four-point correlation functions of heavy half-BPS operators in planar $$ \mathcal{N} $$ N = 4 SYM theory which admit factorization into a product of two octagon form factors with an arbitrary bridge length. We show that the octagon can be expressed as the Fredholm determinant of the integrable Bessel operator and demonstrate that this representation is very efficient in finding the octagons both at weak and strong coupling. At weak coupling, in the limit when the four half-BPS operators become null separated in a sequential manner, the octagon obeys the Toda lattice equations and can be found in a closed form. At strong coupling, we exploit the strong Szegő limit theorem to derive the leading asymptotic behavior of the octagon and, then, apply the method of differential equations to determine the remaining subleading terms of the strong coupling expansion to any order in the inverse coupling. To achieve this goal, we generalize results available in the literature for the asymptotic behavior of the determinant of the Bessel operator. As a byproduct of our analysis, we formulate a Szegő-Akhiezer-Kac formula for the determinant of the Bessel operator with a Fisher-Hartwig singularity and develop a systematic approach to account for subleading power suppressed contributions.

  3. Abstract

    Deterministic positioning single site-controlled high symmetric InGaAs quantum dots (QDs) in (111)B-oriented GaAs photonic crystal cavities with nanometer-scale accuracy provides an idea component for building integrated quantum photonic circuits. However, it has been a long-standing challenge of improving cavityQ-factors in such systems. Here, by optimizing the trade-off between the cavity loss and QD spectral quality, we demonstrate our site-controlled QD-nanocavity system operating in the intermediate coupling regime mediated by phonon scattering, with the dynamic coexistence of strong and weak coupling. The cavity-exciton detuning-dependent micro-photoluminescence spectrum reveals concurrence of a trend of exciton-polariton mode avoided crossing, as a signature of Rabi doublet of the strongly coupled system. Meanwhile, a trend of keeping constant or slight blue shift of coupled exciton–cavity mode(CM) energy across zero-detuning is ascribed to the formation of collective states mediated by phonon-assisted coupling, and their rare partial out-of-synchronization linewidth-narrowing is linked to their coexisting strong-weak coupling regime. We further reveal the pump power-dependent anti-bunching photon statistical dynamics of this coexisting strong-weak coupled system and the optical features of strongly confined exciton-polaritons, and dark-exciton-like states. These observations demonstrate the potential capabilities of site-controlled QD-cavity systems as deterministic quantum nodes for on-chip quantum information processing and provide guidelines for future device optimization for achieving the strong coupling regime.

  4. Abstract

    Coherent coupling between plasmons and transition dipole moments in emitters can lead to two distinct spectral effects: vacuum Rabi splitting at strong coupling strengths, and induced transparency (also known as Fano interference) at intermediate coupling strengths. Achieving either strong or intermediate coupling between a single emitter and a localized plasmon resonance has the potential to enable single-photon nonlinearities and other extreme light–matter interactions, at room temperature and on the nanometer scale. Both effects produce two peaks in the spectrum of scattering from the plasmon resonance, and can thus be confused if scattering measurements alone are performed. Here we report measurements of scattering and photoluminescence from individual coupled plasmon–emitter systems that consist of a single colloidal quantum dot in the gap between a gold nanoparticle and a silver film. The measurements unambiguously demonstrate weak coupling (the Purcell effect), intermediate coupling (Fano interference), and strong coupling (Rabi splitting) at room temperature.

  5. We have studied spectra and angular distribution of emission in Fabry–Perot cavities formed by two silver mirrors separated by a layer of poly (methyl methacrylate) polymer doped with rhodamine 6G (R6G) dye in low (20g/l) and high (200g/l) concentrations. The frequency of emission radiated to a cavity mode was larger at large outcoupling angles—the “rainbow” effect. At the same time, the angle of the strongest emission was also determined by the cavity size: the larger the cavity, the larger the angle. The angular distribution of emission is commonly dominated by two symmetrical lobes (located at the intersection of the three-dimensional emission cone with a horizontal plane) pointing to the left and to the right of the normal to the sample. Despite the strong Stokes shift in R6G dye, the branch of the cavity dispersion curve obtained in the emission experiment is positioned above the one obtained in the reflection (extinction) experiment. Some dye molecules are poorly coupled to cavity modes. Their emission has very broad angular distribution with the maximum atθ<#comment/>=0∘<#comment/>. The signatures of strong cavity–exciton coupling were observed at high dye concentration (200g/l) but not at low concentration (20g/l). The evidence of the effect of strong coupling on emission is exemplified by a strong difference in the angular distribution of emission in two almost identical cavities, one with and another without strong coupling. Most importantly, we have demonstrated the possibility to control the ground state concentration, the coupling strength, and the dye emission spectra with Q-switched laser pulses.
