Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

The quantum Input-Output formalism of Gardiner and Collett is used to derive the rate equation describing the photoelectron counting statistics of an electromagnetic field output from a high-Q optical cavity. The evolution of the cavity field is assumed to be governed by an arbitrary Hamiltonian for a single mode of the field. The resulting equation is shown to conform with one previously derived on intuitive grounds, using purely population statistical arguments, As an explicit example, the solution for a freely-evolving cavity field is computed.
