Abstract

Graphene has been theoretically shown to exhibit anomalous Rabi oscillations (AROs) far from resonance in addition to conventional Rabi oscillations close to resonance (classical light frequency matches particle-hole frequency). The ARO has been attributed to the pseudospin degree of freedom that is unique to graphene-like systems. In this work, we show the same phenomenon also occurs in the single-photon limit or even in a vacuum. This is to be expected for conventional Rabi oscillations; however, the prediction that AROs also occur in the single-photon situation means that this notion of ARO is robust and not an artifact of approximations. We also study collapse and revival of both conventional and AROs in response to a coherent radiation field and extract the collapse and revival times in both cases.
