Lasing with one-emitter — •Fabrice P. Laussy1, Elena del Valle2, and Jonathan J. Finley1 — 1Walter Schottky Institut, München, Germany — 2Technische Universität München, Germany
We revisit the one-atom laser, where optical coherence grows thanks to a single emitter in strong-coupling with a cavity field. We identify a new regime where the emission of uncorrelated photons is retained even without stimulated emission. We provide the conditions for this and prove analytically that a field coherent to all orders is generated even for small and vanishing intensities, bringing a new light to thresholdless lasing. We analyse the crossover between this regime and the one established by stimulated emission and show that a universal transition--independent of the energy scales--occurs when going from the quantum to the classical regime, where the quantization picture breaks down, giving rise to a new type of Mollow triplet.
