Abstract

We calculate the integrated-pulse quantum efficiency of single-photon sources in the cavity quantum electrodynamics (QED) strong-coupling regime. An analytical expression for the quantum efficiency is obtained in the Weisskopf-Wigner approximation. Optimal conditions for a high quantum efficiency and a temporally localized photon emission rate are examined. We show the condition under which the earlier result of Law and Kimble [J. Mod. Opt. 44, 2067 (1997)] can be used as the first approximation to our result.

Schematic description of a lossy two-level emitter interacting with a single mode in a leaky optical cavity. g 0 is the coupling constant between the emitter and the cavity field. A p , A p * and B k B k * are the coupling constants between the emitter, a single photon and their respective reservoir (R 1, R 2) fields.

Plots for the time dependence of (a) the emission probabilities of single photons Po (t), and (b) the emission rates n(t), in three different cavity regimes: optimal cavity regime for κ = g02/ κγ, good cavity regime for g02/κ > κγ, and bad cavity regime for κ > g02/κγ, (red dot, blue square and green triangle, respectively) with κ/2π = (50,20,100)GHz , respectively.
