Abstract

I consider several interesting aspects of a new light source, a two-level atom, or N two-level atoms inside an optical parametric oscillator. I find that in the weak driving limit, detection of a transmitted or fluorescent photon generates a highly entangled state of the atom and the cavity. This entanglement can be used with beam splitters to create more complex quantum states and implement teleportation protocols. Also, one can store a single photon in the atoms, along the lines of recent slow and stopped light proposals and experiments.
