Paper Abstract

An ensemble of identical two level atoms in dark state neither adsorbs nor emits photons due to destructive interference. Dark states have numerous applications. It can be used for the source of energy for nano-devices; the space of dark states is decoherence free and can serve as the carrier for the fault tolerant quantum computations, etc. Since a dark state does not interact with the electromagnetic field it is an eigenstate of Tavis-Cummings Hamiltonian and the preparation of such states requires the exit from this model. We show how to prepare a dark state by the photon pumping and drain from the optical cavity with two atoms, one from which has Stark or Zeeman splitting of energy levels. This splitting is removed before photon drain from the cavity. The dark state yield after one such cycle has the order of energy level splitting. We show the scheme of the experiment, in which such cycles repeat until the dark state is produced with high probability and the results of its computer simulation. The structure of dark states is briefly discussed.
