# Quasiclassical Modeling of Cavity Quantum Electrodynamics

5 Oct 2019Tao E. LiHsing-Ta ChenAbraham NitzanJoseph E. Subotnik

We model a collection of $N$ two-level systems (TLSs) coupled to a multimode cavity via Meyer-Miller-Stock-Thoss (MMST) dynamics, sampling both electronic and photonic zero-point energies (ZPEs) and propagating independent trajectories in Wigner phase space. By investigating the ground state stability of a single TLS, we use MMST dynamics to separately study both electronic ZPE effects (which would naively lead to the breakdown of the electronic ground state) as well as photonic ZPE effects (which would naively lead to spontaneous absorption)...
