We investigate the influence of light-matter interactions on correlated quantum matter by studying the paradigmatic Ising model subject to a quantum Rabi coupling. This type of coupling to a bosonic light mode resembles a quantized transverse magnetic field where the strength of the field can be tuned by adjusting the density of optical states as well as the number of photons. As a consequence, the symmetry-broken magnetic state breaks down for strong enough light-mater interactions to a paramagnetic state. The non-local character of the bosonic mode changes the quantum phase transition in a drastic manner, which we analyzed quantitatively for the simplest case of an Ising chain in a quantized magnetic field (or equivalently Dicke-Ising chain). It displays a direct transition between a magnetically ordered phase with zero photon density and a magnetically polarized phase with lasing behaviour of the light. Our results are equally valid for the dual quantized Ising chain in a conventional transverse magnetic field.
