Non-Markovian Quantum Optics: Spontaneous Emission of a Giant Artificial Atom

In quantum optics, light-matter interaction has conventionally been studied using small atoms interacting with electromagnetic fields with wavelength several orders of magnitude larger than the atomic dimensions. However, recently in the experiment with superconducting circuits, people have demonstrated the vastly different giant atom regime, where an artificial atom interacts with acoustic fields with wavelength several orders of magnitude smaller than the atomic dimensions. This is achieved by coupling a superconducting qubit (artificial two-level atom) to surface acoustic waves via piezoelectric effects. The slow velocity of sound leads to a significant internal time-delay for the field to propagate across the giant atom, giving rise to non-Markovian dynamics [1] such as the nonexponential relaxation in the time domain [2]. The giant atoms with deterministic time delayes represent a new paradigm in quantum optics, i.e., the non-Markovian quantum optics.
