Quantum Antenna as an Open System: Strong Antenna Coupling with Photonic Reservoir
AbstractWe propose a general concept of quantum antenna in the strong coupling regime. It is based on the theory of open quantum systems. Antenna emission into space is considered an interaction with a thermal photonic reservoir. For antenna dynamics modeling, we formulate master equations with a corresponding Lindblad super-operators for the radiation terms. It is shown that strong coupling dramatically changes the radiation pattern of antenna. The total power pattern splits to three partial components, each of which corresponds to a spectral line in Mollow triplet. We analyzed the dependence of splitting on the length of antenna, shift of the phase, and Rabi-frequency. The predicted effect opens a way for implementation of multi-beam electrically tunable antennas, potentially useful in different nano-devices. View Full-Text
