Abstract

Rydberg atoms in a cavity are ideally suited for studying the dynamics of N atom single-mode interactions in the cases of both 1-photon [1] and multi-photon [2] atomic transitions. In connection with recent experimental studies [2] we briefly report in this note some results on the dynamics and statistical properties of N 2-level Rydberg atoms (including N=1) in 2-photon resonance, and 2-photon off-resonance, with the cavity field at high Q (both Q = ∞ and Q < ∞). Our most recent results concern non-degenerate 2-photon processes which we also briefly describe. We also sketch interesting collective results for low Q (5x103) and finite temperature (eg. black-body n = 1,50,150)
