Paper Abstract

Atom coherence in the cooperative interaction between the atoms and a single photon creates ultrafast spontaneous emission and ultrastrong intensity peaks, namely single-photon superradiance, which has attracted considerable research interest in the recent years. As the investigation for such a single-photon superradiance usually involves only quantum emitters, in this paper we present the cooperative atom-photon interaction in a system including whispering gallery mode resonators, which are one of the most essential components in nanophotonic devices. Here we both analytically and computationally show that the separated atoms on a resonator can obtain cooperative interaction, manifesting superradiant coupling strength, which results in the ultrafast spontaneous emission and ultrastrong intensity peaks. The conditions of such single-photon superradiance are called whispering gallery mode superradiance conditions. Furthermore, the atoms are proved to have cooperative interaction on a cascade of resonators by a renormalization approach.
