Abstract

We solve exactly a set of fully quantized coupled equations that describe the quantum dynamics, including the evolution of quantum fluctuations, entanglements, and correlations, of four-wave mixing (FWM) with matter waves. The analytical solution reveals Rabi oscillations, collapses and revivals, and agrees with FWM experiments. It also applies to optical FWM and the Rayleigh superradiance in Bose–Einstein condensates.
