Applications of collective dissipative effects in dense quantum emitter ensembles

Dense ensembles of atoms/molecules exhibit collective radiative effects brought on by the common interaction with the electromagnetic vacuum modes. Collective subradiant states show large lifetimes and thus are useful to applications in metrology [1] or quantum information [2]. Moreover, in the context of cavity quantum electrodynamics, subradiant ensembles can strongly modify standard scaling laws of the collective light-matter interactions [3] and lead to enhanced optical nonlinearities [4]. Using a recently developed quantum Langevin equations approach to include vibronic couplings typical for molecular systems [5], we investigate aspects of super/subradiance in dense molecular ensembles.
