    In this paper we propose a theoretical scheme to show the possibility of generating various families of nonlinear (f-deformed) coherent states of the radiation field in a micromaser. We show that these states can be provided in a lossless micromaser cavity under the weak Jaynes-Cummings...

    We construct one new type of quantum state that we call the modified photon-added coherent state (MPACS) of the radiation field. These states are created by repeatedly applying the Hermitian operator (a + a+) to the coherent state m times. It turns out that these states are the superpositions of...

These states and the photon-added coherent states are shown to be the limiting cases of a generalized photon-added...

    Non-classical state, which is a production of the superposition of photon-added even/odd coherent states (SPAEOCS), is introduced. We discussed the mathematical and physical character of such state. It is found that the normalization constant of SPAEOCS is a laguerre polynomial. The...

    Fully controlled coherent coupling of arbitrary harmonic oscillators is an important tool for processing quantum information. Coupling between quantum harmonic oscillators has previously been demonstrated in several physical systems using a two-level system as a mediating element. Direct...
