Effective Spin Model
Luttinger Liquid Physics Intrinsic in Cavity QED Lattice
Cavity QED Lattice Physics in XY Model
(1). We express cavity QED lattice system in integrable
quantum spin system.
(2). Elementary excitation of the cavity QED lattice is the
Majorana fermions.
(3). We have derived the Dirac equation for the cavity QED
lattice and the condition for the massless excitations.
(4). We have derived the condition in terms of Rabi frequency
oscillations and coupling strengths where the physics of
Transverse Ising model and anisotropic XY model are the same.
