  1. Cavity quantum electrodynamics

    Cavity quantum electrodynamics is the study of the interaction between light confined in a reflective cavity and atoms or other particles, under conditions where the quantum nature of light photons is significant. It could in principle be used to construct a quantum computer. The case of a single 2-level atom in the cavity is mathematically described by the Jaynes-Cummings model, and undergoes vacuum Rabi oscillations, that is between an excited atom and n-1 photons, and a ground state atom and n photons. If the cavity is on resonance with the atomic transition, a half-cycle of oscillation starting with no photons coherently swaps the atom qubit's state onto the cavity field's, and can be repeated to swap it back again; this could be used as a single photon source, or as an interface between an atom or trapped ion quantum computer and optical quantum communication. Other interaction durations create entanglement between the atom and cavity field; for example, a quarter-cycle on resonance starting from gives the maximally entangled state . This can in principle be used as a quantum computer, mathematically equivalent to a trapped ion quantum computer with cavity photons replacing phonons.
