All-optical control of photon statistics with hybrid quantum plasmonic system. (arXiv:1802.01086v1 [quant-ph])

We propose an all-optical scheme to control the photon statistics using
hybrid quantum plasmonic system. With the aid of dressed states, it is shown
that the photon correlation of signal field can be continuously modulated from
bunching to antibunching under the control of a pump field. Apart from the
exact multimode model, we identify the roles of multimode coupling and quantum
interference between probability amplitudes, peculiar to the studied system,
through a single-mode model and an analytical treatment. Different from the
cavity quantum electrodynamics methods, the proposed scheme works well in the
bad cavity limit. These findings suggested that this hybrid system provides a
feasible nanophotonic platform for active modulation of photon correlation and
for future quantum devices.
