Abstract

We report on a combined experimental and theoretical investigation into the normal modes of an all-fiber coupled cavity-quantum-electrodynamics system. The interaction between atomic ensembles and photons in the same cavities, and that between the photons in these cavities and the photons in the fiber connecting these cavities, generates five nondegenerate normal modes. We demonstrate our ability to excite each normal mode individually. We study particularly the "cavity dark mode," in which the two cavities coupled directly to the atoms do not exhibit photonic excitation. Through the observation of this mode, we demonstrate remote excitation and nonlocal saturation of atoms.
