Radiation pressure induced differencesideband generation beyond linearized description
Abstract
We investigate radiationpressure induced generation of the frequency components at the differencesideband in an optomechanical system, which beyond the conventional linearized description of optomechanical interactions between cavity fields and the mechanical oscillation. We analytically calculate amplitudes of these signals, and identify a simple squareroot law for both the upper and lower differencesideband generation which can describe the dependence of the intensities of these signals on the pump power. Further calculation shows that differencesideband generation can be greatly enhanced via achieving the matching conditions. The effect of differencesideband generation, which may have potential application for manipulation of light, is especially suited for onchip optomechanical devices, where nonlinear optomechanical interaction in the weak coupling regime is within current experimental reach.

Electrooptic sampling (EOS) is widely used as a technique to measure THzdomain electric field pulses such as the selffields of femtosecond electron beams. We present an EOSbased approach for singleshot spectral measurement that excels in simplicity (compatible with fiber integration) and bandwidth coverage (overcomes the laser bandwidth limitation), allowing fewfs electron beams or singlecycle THz pulses to be characterized with conventional picosecond probes. It is shown that the EOSinduced optical sidebands on the narrowbandwidth optical probe are spectrallyshifted replicas of the THz pulse. An experimental demonstration on a 03 THz source is presented.

Beyond the electricdipole approximation: A formulation and implementation of molecular response theory for the description of absorption of electromagnetic field radiation
We present a formulation of molecular response theory for the description of a quantum mechanical molecular system in the presence of a weak, monochromatic, linearly polarized electromagnetic field without introducing truncated multipolar expansions. The presentation focuses on a description of linear absorption by adopting the energyloss approach in combination with the complex polarization propagator formulation of response theory. Going beyond the electricdipole approximation is essential whenever studying electricdipoleforbidden transitions, and in general, nondipolar effects become increasingly important when addressing spectroscopies involving higherenergy photons. These two aspects are examined by our study of the near Kedge Xray absorption fine structure ofmore » 
Transverse effects in pairedphoton generation via an electromagnetically induced transparency medium. II. Beyond perturbation theory
Generation of counterpropagating paired Stokes and antiStokes photons in a double{lambda} (or M) type electromagnetically induced transparency (EIT) system is examined in quantum theory in the threedimensional space. We use the MaxwellBloch equations to study the transverse effects of generated entangled photon pairs via such an EIT medium. We reexamine correlation measurements for both amplitude and intensity correlations. In the low parametric gain region [{radical}(v{sub g}/8{gamma}{sub 31}L)>>{radical}(k{sub s}/k{sub as})(vertical bar {omega}{sub p} vertical bar/vertical bar{gamma}{sub p} vertical bar)], when the paired Stokes and antiStokes are at the singlephoton level, we obtain the results shown in Wen and Rubin, Phys. Rev.more » 
Kinetic description of the sideband instability in a helicalwiggler freeelectron laser
The VlasovMaxwell equations are used to investigate properties of the sideband instability for a tenuous, relativistic electron beam propagating in the zitalic direction through a constantamplitude helicalwiggler magnetic field B/sub witalic/(x) = Bitaliccircumflex/sub witalic/(cos kitalic/sub 0/ zitalicecircumflex/sub xitalic/+sin kitalic/sub 0/ zitalicecircumflex/sub yitalic/). The theoretical model neglects longitudinal perturbations (deltaphiapprox. =0) and transverse spatial variations (partial/partialxitalic = 0 = partial/partialyitalic). Moreover, the analysis is carried out for perturbations about an equilibrium BGK state in which the distribution of beam electrons Gitalic/sub sitalic/(..gamma..') and the wiggler magnetic field (normalized amplitude aitalic/sub witalic/ = eitalicBitaliccircumflex/sub witalic//mitaliccitalic/sup 2/kitalic/sub 0/) coexist in quasisteady equilibrium withmore » 
Real time correlation function in a single phase spaceintegralbeyond the linearized semiclassical initial valuerepresentation
It is shown how quantum mechanical time correlation functions [defined, e.g., in Eq. (1.1)] can be expressed, without approximation, in the same form as the linearized approximation of the semiclassical initial value representation (LSCIVR), or classical Wigner model, for the correlation function [cf. Eq. (2.1)], i.e., as a phase space average (over initial conditions for trajectories) of the Wigner functions corresponding to the two operators. The difference is that the trajectories involved in the LSCIVR evolve classically, i.e., according to the classical equations of motion, while in the exact theory they evolve according to generalized equations of motion that aremore »
