We consider a semiconductor quantum well in a microcavity driven by coherent light and coupled to a squeezed vacuum reservoir. By systematically solving the pertinent quantum Langevin equations in the strong-coupling and low-excitation regimes, we study the effect of exciton-photon detuning, external coherent light, and the squeezed vacuum reservoir on vacuum Rabi splitting and on quantum statistical properties of the light emitted by
the quantum well. We show that the exciton-photon detuning leads to a shift in polariton resonance frequencies and a decrease in fluorescence intensity. We also show that the fluorescent light exhibits quadrature squeezing, which predominately depends on the exciton-photon detuning and the degree of the squeezing of the input field.

    ABSTRACT: We present a study of semiconductor cavity QED effects with squeezed light. We investigate the effects of external squeezed light produced by a subthreshold optical parametric down conversion on the quantum features of the cavity as well as output radiation in the presence of exciton-exciton scattering. It turns out that the width of the spectrum of the cavity field strongly depends on the degree of squeezing. This effect is observed both in weak-and strong-coupling regimes. Moreover, we show that the external squeezed light has a profound effect on the amount of squeezing of the output field.

    ABSTRACT: We study nonlinear effects in an optomechanical system containing a quantum well. The nonlinearity due to the optomechanical coupling leads to a bistable behavior in the mean intracavity photon number and substantial squeezing in the transmitted field. We show that the optical bistability and the degree of squeezing can be controlled by tuning the power and frequency of the pump laser. The transmitted field intensity spectrum consists of six distinct peaks corresponding to optomechanical, polariton, and hybrid resonances. Interestingly, even though the quantum well and the mechanical modes are not directly coupled, their interaction with the common quantized cavity mode results in appearance of hybrid resonances.

    ABSTRACT: We investigate nonlinear effects in an electromechanical system consisting of a superconducting charge qubit coupled to a transmission line resonator and a nanomechanical oscillator, which in turn is coupled to another transmission line resonator. The nonlinearities induced by the superconducting qubit and the optomechanical coupling play an important role in creating optomechanical entanglement as well as the squeezing of the transmitted microwave field. We show that strong squeezing of the microwave field and robust optomechanical entanglement can be achieved in the presence of moderate thermal decoherence of the mechanical mode.We also discuss the effect of the coupling of the superconducting qubit to the nanomechanical oscillator on the bistability behavior of the mean photon number.
