Dynamical Steady-States in Driven Quantum Systems    [PDF]

T. M. Stace, A. C. Doherty, D. J. Reilly
We derive dynamical equations for a driven, dissipative quantum system in which the environment- induced relaxation rate is comparable to the Rabi frequency, avoiding assumptions on the frequency dependence of the environmental coupling. When the environmental coupling varies significantly on the scale of the Rabi frequency, secular or rotating wave approximations break down. Our approach avoids these approximations, yielding dynamical, periodic steady-states. This is important for the qualitative and quantitative description of the interaction between driven quantum dots and their phonon environment. The theory agrees well with recent experiments, describing the transition from asymmetric unsaturated resonances at weak driving to population inversion at strong driving.
