Paper Abstract

Here we study the open modification of the Jaynes-Cummings model that is the coupled system of the dressed atom and the quantized mode. The mode is initially in the coherent quantum state exhibiting the Poissonian photon statistics. When the quasienergy levels of the dressed atom cross the mean number of photons (n) in the mode undergoes high- amplitude oscillations. Numeric results show that each time the value of (n) falls the photon statistics becomes more regular. Instantaneously, the statistics can become sub- Poissonian with the Fano factor F equalsV (Delta) n2/(n) being many times as small as unity. The above observation provides the evidence that the photons undergo correlated absorption, i.e., they tend to disappear in twos, in threes, etc.
