Title: Few Photon Transport in Many-Body Photonic Systems: A Scattering Approach
Abstract: I will talk about the quantum transport of multi-photon Fockstates in one-dimensional Bose-Hubbard lattices implemented in QED cavity arrays (QCAs). In recent work we proposed an optical scheme toprobe the underlying many-body states of these systems by analyzing the properties of the transmitted light using scattering theory. To this end, we employed the Lippmann-Schwinger formalism within which an analytical form of the scattering matrix can be found. The latter is evaluated explicitly for the two particle/photon-two site case. The results indicate that the underlying structure of the many-body states of the model in question can be directly inferred from the physical properties of the transported photons in its QCA realization. We find that a fully-resonant two-photon scattering scenario allows a faithful characterization of the underlying many-body states, unlike in the coherent driving scenario usually employed in quantum Master equation treatments. Our method is general and can be applied to probe the structure of any many- body bosonic models amenable to a QCA implementation including the Jaynes-Cummings-Hubbard, the extended Bose-Hubbard as well as a whole range of spin models.
