Implementation of an impedance-matched Λsystem by dressed-state

Kazuki Koshino, Kunihiro Inomata, Tsuyoshi Yamamoto, Yasunobu Nakamura
In one-dimensional optical setups, light-matter interaction is drastically enhanced by the interference between the incident and scattered fields. Particularly, in the impedance-matched \Lambda-type three-level systems, a single photon deterministically induces the Raman transition and switches the electronic state of the system. Here we show that such a \Lambda system can be implemented by using dressed states of a driven superconducting qubit and a resonator. The input microwave photons are perfectly absorbed and are down-converted into other frequency modes in the same waveguide. The proposed setup is applicable to single-photon detection in the microwave domain.
