Theory of an Optically Driven Quantum Dot Phonon Laser

Recent technological progress in the area of nanophononics and the design of high $Q$ phonon cavities [acoustic nanocavities, nanomechanical oscillators] constitutes the basis for new applications, such as phonon lasers. As an acoustic pendent to the optical lasers, the concept of stimulated emission can be generalized onto phononic systems. As a source of coherent and nonequilibrium phonons, we propose a optically pumped quantum-dot-acoustic cavity system, operated as a phonon laser. Next to a full quantum theory approach [J. Kabuss et al. Phys. Rev. Lett. 109, 054301 (2012)], where we study the statistical properties of the phonon emission, we further develop an effective semiclassical treatment [J. Kabuss et al., Phys. Rev. B, 88, 064305 (2013)]. Deriving analytical formulas for the statistics, phonon number and threshold properties we give an analysis of the operational limits and regimes of such a phonon source. Even though the equations exhibit new contributions, we find a strong resemblance to an incoherently pumped single atom laser exhibiting the typical self-quenching behavior. In contrast to the incoherently pumped atom case, however, a medium pure dephasing as present in the semiconductor case conveniently counteracts this feature.
