Abstract

A method of photon coincidence spectroscopy (PCS) is developed to overcome the difficulties associated with Jaynes-Cummings model (JCM) and to provide an experimental signature of the nonlinear regimen of the JCM spectrum. The atom is excited directly by a bichromatic laser field, and two-photon coincidence detection is performed on the cavity output field. The complication that arises is considered because the two-photon de-excitation is not instantaneous: the temporal separation between the two photons in the pair is random and of the order of the cavity lifetime. The optimal window time T is also determined for photon pairs to maximize the number of genuine pairs while minimizing the number of false pairs.
