Paper Abstract

An almost ideal thresholdless laser can be realized in the strong-coupling regime of the light-matter interaction, with Poissonian fluctuations of the field at all pumping powers. Here, we show that this ideal scenario is thwarted by quantum nonlinearities when crossing from the linear to the stimulated emission regime. A universal jump in the normalized intensity correlation function is predicted to occur, the measurement of which could be used to establish a standard fingerprint of the onset of lasing in the strong coupling regime.
