Conference paper


We consider the interaction of a large number of atoms in a cavity driven by a coherent and broadband squeezed field in the strong coupling regime, where a splitting of the first excited state of the atom-field system leads to a double peaked spectrum for intracavity intensities well below atomic saturation.1
