Superradiance paradox in waveguide lattices

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

Recently, it has been suggested that the collective radiative decay of two point-like quantum emitters coupled to a waveguide, separated by a distance comparable to the coherence length of a spontaneously emitted photon, leads to an apparent “superradiance paradox” by which one cannot decide whether independent or collective emission occurs. Here we suggest an integrated optics platform to emulate the superradiance paradox, based on photon escape dynamics in waveguide lattices. Remarkably, Markovian decay dynamics and independent photon emission can be restored by frequent (Zeno-like) observation of the system.
