We propose a scheme to realize the fractional quantum Hall system with atoms confined in a two-dimensional array of coupled cavities. Our scheme is based on simple optical manipulation of atomic internal states and intercavity hopping of virtually excited photons. It is shown that, as well as the fractional quantum Hall system, any system of hard-core bosons on a lattice in the presence of an arbitrary Abelian vector potential can be simulated solely by controlling the phases of constantly applied lasers. The scheme, for the first time, exploits the core advantage of coupled cavity simulations, namely, the individual addressability of the components, and also brings the gauge potential into such simulations as well as the simple optical creation of particles.

    • "The nontransmission frequency range can be enlarged as desired by using QW. The use of QW exciton embedded in high-finesse semiconductor microcavities of the Fabry-Perot type has allowed observing a modification of spontaneous emission (weak coupling regime) [15] [16] [17] [18] [19] [20] [21] as well as the occurrence of a vacuum Rabi splitting (strong coupling regime) [22] [23] [24] [25]. The latter effect arises when the radiationmatter coupling energy overcomes the damping rates of QW exciton and microcavities photons. "

    ABSTRACT: We have studied the transmissivity of one-dimensional photonic crystals quantum well (QW) with quantum theory approach. By calculation, we find that there are photon bound states in the QW structure (B A) 6 (B B A B B) n (A B) 6, and the numbers of the bound states are equal to n + 1. We have found that there are some new features in the QW, which can be used to design optic amplifier, attenuator, and optic filter of multiple channel.

    • "The original purpose for introducing coupled-cavity models is to overcome the problem of individual addressability. Along with theoretically intensive study on this model, many interesting phenomena are observed such as photon blockade induced Mott transitions [31], polaritonic characteristics of insulator and superfluid states [32], fractional quantum Hall state [33], multimode entanglement [34], and other quantum many-body phenomena [35]. Recently , the coupled-cavity systems are also applied in distributed controlled-phase gate [36] [37] [38] [39]. "

    ABSTRACT: We present two efficient methods for implementing the Fredkin (controlled swap) gate with atoms separately trapped in an array of three high-$Q$ coupled cavities. The first proposal is based on large detuning interaction that the effective long-distance dipole-dipole-like interaction between two distributed target qubits is achieved by virtually excited qubits and cavities. The second one utilizes the selective resonant dynamics, which leads to a fast resonant interaction in a certain subspace while leaving others unchanged. Both schemes can achieve the standard form of the Fredkin gate in a single step without any subsequent single-qubit operation. The effects of decoherence on the performance of the gate are also analyzed in virtue of master equation, and the strictly numerical simulation reveals the average fidelity of the quantum gate is relatively high corresponding to the state-of-the-art technology.

    • "An array of resonators each containing a qubit that induces a Kerr nonlinearity will be a realization of the boson Hubbard model [175] which exhibits both superfluid and Mott insulator phases. There is now a burgeoning interest in seeing 'quantum phase transitions of light' [176] [177] [178] [179] [180] [181] [182] [183] [184] [185] [186] [187] [188] [189] [190] [191] [192] [193] [194] [195]. Since the transmon qubit is itself an anharmonic oscillator, one might imagine it would be easier to simply use a lattice of coupled transmons to realize the boson Hubbard model (with negative Kerr coefficient).

    ABSTRACT: The last two decades have seen tremendous advances in our ability to generate and manipulate quantum coherence in mesoscopic superconducting circuits. These advances have opened up the study of quantum optics of microwave photons in superconducting circuits as well as providing important hardware for the manipulation of quantum information. Focusing primarily on charge-based qubits, we provide a brief overview of these developments and discuss the present state of the art. We also survey the remarkable progress that has been made in realizing circuit quantum electrodynamics (QED) in which superconducting artificial atoms are strongly coupled to individual microwave photons.
