Abstract
The strong coupling regime is essential for efficient transfer of excitations between states in different quantum systems on timescales shorter than their lifetimes. The coupling of single spins to microwave photons is very weak but can be enhanced by increasing the local density of states by reducing the magnetic mode volume of the cavity. In practice, it is difficult to achieve both small cavity mode volume and low cavity decay rate, so superconducting metals are often employed at cryogenic temperatures. For an ensembles of N spins, the spin–photon coupling can be enhanced by \(\sqrt N\) through collective spin excitations known as Dicke states. For sufficiently large N the collective spin–photon coupling can exceed both the spin decoherence and cavity decay rates, making the strongcoupling regime accessible. Here we demonstrate strong coupling and cavity quantum electrodynamics in a solidstate system at roomtemperature. We generate an inverted spinensemble with N ~ 10^{15} by photoexciting pentacene molecules into spintriplet states with spin dephasing time \(T_2^*\sim 3\) μs. When coupled to a 1.45 GHz TE_{01δ} mode supported by a high Purcell factor strontium titanate dielectric cavity (\(V_{\mathrm{m}}\sim 0.25\) cm^{3}, Q ~ 8,500), we observe Rabi oscillations in the microwave emission from collective Dicke states and a 1.8 MHz normalmode splitting of the resultant collective spin–photon polariton. We also observe a cavity protection effect at the onset of the strongcoupling regime which decreases the polariton decay rate as the collective coupling increases.

Introduction
Collective lightmatter interactions are fundamental to cavity quantum electrodynamics (cQED)^{1} and a key feature is the strong coupling regime, where excitations are coherently transferred between different quantum systems over timescales significantly shorter than their lifetimes. A striking example is the Dicke state,^{2} responsible for the enigmatic phenomenon of superradiance, where the rate of emission from an ensemble of emitters is proportional to the square of their number. The enhanced coupling of Dicke states to electromagnetic radiation has been utilised experimentally for studying atomic gases in highfinesse optical cavities,^{3} emitters near plasmonic nanoparticles,^{4} electron spins coupled to superconducting qubits^{5,6} and subHertz linewidth superradiant lasers.^{7,8,9} Typically, cryogenic cooling is required to polarise the spin population and mitigate spin dephasing and cavity mode decay. Here we report strongcoupling and longlived collective Rabi oscillations at roomtemperature between Dicke states, in an optically excited spintriplet ensemble, and a cavity mode supported by a strontium titanate (STO) dielectric resonator at 1.45 GHz. The spin ensemble becomes highly correlated through stimulated emission with suppressed spin decoherence due to a cavity protection effect.^{10,11,12}
Consider a collection of N twolevel systems, which can be regarded as pseudo spin\(\frac{1}{2}\) particles, resonantly coupled to a cavity mode where the distance between them is much less than the cavity mode’s wavelength. This system is described by the Tavis–Cummings Hamiltonian^{13} within the rotating wave approximation:
where \(g_{\mathrm{e}} = g_{\mathrm{s}}\sqrt N\) is the enhanced collective spin–photon coupling strength, g _{s} is the single spin–photon coupling strength, ω _{c} is the cavity frequency, ω _{s} is the spin (twolevel) transition frequency, a ^{†} (a) are the cavity photon creation (annihilation) operators, S ^{z} is the collective inversion operator and \(\tilde S^ \pm\) are the normalised collective spin operators. The collective inversion operator is defined by \(S^z = \mathop {\sum}\nolimits_j^N \sigma _j^z\), where \(\sigma _j^z\) is the inversion operator for the jth spin, and the normalised spin operators are defined by \(\tilde S^ \pm = N^{  \frac{1}{2}}\mathop {\sum}\nolimits_j^N \sigma _j^ \pm\), where \(\sigma _j^ \pm\) are the pseudospin ladder raising/lowering operators. The eigenstates are the Dicke states: \(\left {J,M} \right\rangle\) where J = 0, 1, …, N/2 and M = −J, …, J, which form a finite nondegenerate ladder of N + 1 levels. The Tavis–Cummings Hamiltonian therefore describes the joint evolution of cavity mode and Dicke states along separate ladders of equidistant states.
The strong coupling regime can be achieved for single quantum emitters interacting with photons within electromagnetic fields through their electric dipole moment,^{14} however the magnetic coupling strength of single spins to photons is typically far too weak at microwave frequencies. By placing a spin in a resonant cavity, the coupling can be enhanced through the Purcell effect^{15} where the local density of photonic states is modified by the geometry. The coupling strength of a single spin to a photon is then given by \(g_{\mathrm{s}} = \gamma \sqrt {\mu _0\hbar \omega _{\mathrm{c}}{\mathrm{/}}2V_{\mathrm{m}}}\), where γ is the electron gyromagnetic ratio, μ _{0} is the permeability of freespace, ħ is the reduced Planck constant, ω _{c} is the angular frequency of the cavity field and V _{m} is the magnetic mode volume. Furthermore, the spin–photon coupling strength g _{e} for an ensemble of N spins is enhanced by a factor \(\sqrt N\).^{6,16} Hence, for a sufficient number of spins N and small mode volume V _{m}, it should be possible for the ensemble spin–photon coupling strength to exceed both the decay rate of the cavity mode κ _{c} and the spin dephasing rate of the spins κ _{s}, taking the system into the strong coupling regime.
Results
In order to satisfy this condition at roomtemperature, we utilise a system comprising spintriplets in pentacene molecules to generate a polarised (inverted) population of N spins and a cavity with small magnetic mode volume, \(V_{\mathrm{m}}\sim 10^{  5}\lambda ^3\), where λ is the freespace wavelength (see Fig. 1d). Following photoexcitation of pentacene in zero magnetic field, the nondegenerate X, Y, Z sublevels of the T _{1} spintriplet are rapidly populated in the ratios 0.76 : 0.16 : 0.08, respectively^{17} (see Fig. 1a). Since the fluorescence lifetime of photoexcited singlet states in pentacene is ~9 ns and the intersystem crossing singlettriplet quantum yield is 0.625,^{18} the singlettriplet transition lifetime is expected to be ~14 ns. The initial inversion is S ^{z} ≈ 0.8N, where N is the number of pentacene molecules excited into either the \(\left e \right\rangle \equiv \left X \right\rangle\) or \(\left g \right\rangle \equiv \left Z \right\rangle\) states, which at zero magnetic field have a frequency splitting of ω _{s}/2π ≈ 1.45 GHz. The \(\left Y \right\rangle\) state does not play a significant role and shall not be considered further. The cavity is similar to the one reported for a miniaturised roomtemperature maser which uses a hollow cylinder of STO, but houses a pentacenedoped pterphenyl crys tal with a much higher concentration of 0.053% mol/mol than in previous studies.^{19,20} The TE_{01δ} mode has a frequency tuned to the \(\left e \right\rangle \leftrightarrow \left g \right\rangle\) spin transition, ω _{c} ≈ ω _{s} ≈ 2π × 1.45 GHz. This mode has a magnetic field dipole directed along the cylindrical axis (Fig. 1b) which, via the S ^{y} spinoperator, induces transitions between the \(\left e \right\rangle \leftrightarrow \left g \right\rangle\) states in suitably aligned pentacene molecules. STO has a high electric permittivity (ε _{ r } ≈ 320) that allows a subwavelength (\(\lambda _0{\mathrm{/}}18\sim 1\) cm) cavity to be constructed with a mode volume V _{m} of 0.25 cm^{3}. An optical parametric oscillator (OPO) generated λ ~ 592 nm pulses of 5.5 ns duration and energy up to 15 mJ at a repetition rate of 10 Hz. The 4 mm diameter (Gaussian profile) beam of the OPO was focussed onto the 3 mm diameter pentacenedoped pterphenyl crystal by the high refractive index (n ~ 2.6) of the STO. Numerical modelling of the penetration of optical pulses into the pentacenedoped pterphenyl allowed the number N of excited pentacene molecules to be estimated^{18} and revealed that the spintriplet yield is a linear function of the incident optical pulse energy (see Supplementary Information). For an optical pulse energy of 15 mJ, the number of pentacene molecules N excited into the \(\left e \right\rangle\) and \(\left g \right\rangle\) states was estimated to be ~7 × 10^{14}, with an initial inversion S ^{z} ~ 6 × 10^{14}.
The microwave magnetic energydensity (Fig. 1b) can be mapped directly to the single spin–photon coupling in the central region of the cavity housing the pentacene molecules (Fig. 1c). Within the region illuminated by the optical pulse, the single spin–photon coupling is g _{s}/2π = 0.042 ± 0.002 Hz. An estimate of the ensemble spin–photon coupling strength is therefore \(g_{\mathrm{e}} \equiv g_{\mathrm{s}}\sqrt N \approx 2\pi \times 1.1\) MHz. The cavity mode decay rate (linewidth) was measured to be κ _{c} = 2π × 0.18 MHz and the spin decoherence rate of the transition was taken from reported roomtemperature free induction decay measurements of the spin dephasing time for samples of similar concentration, \(T_2^* = 2.9\) μs,^{21} yielding a rate of \(\kappa _{\mathrm{s}} = 2{\mathrm{/}}T_2^* \approx 2\pi \times 0.11\) MHz. The spinlattice relaxation rate and decay rates of the triplet sublevels back to the singlet ground state are at least an order of magnitude slower than the spin dephasing rate so can be neglected.^{22} Thus, the system is expected to be within the strong coupling regime since the predicted ensemble spin–photon coupling is an order of magnitude greater than both the cavity decay and spin dephasing rates, \(g_{\mathrm{e}} \gg \kappa _{\mathrm{c}},\kappa _{\mathrm{s}}\), with cooperativity \(C = 4g_{\mathrm{e}}^2{\mathrm{/}}\kappa _{\mathrm{c}}\kappa _{\mathrm{s}} \approx 250\).
Stimulated emission, due to the population inversion established by the optical pulse, amplifies the thermal cavity photon population \(\left( {\bar n\sim 4 \times 10^3} \right)\), resulting in a buildup of electromagnetic energy in the cavity, i.e., masing.^{23} The instantaneous (singleshot) microwave signal coupled out of the cavity, tuned to a frequency of ω _{c} = 2π × 1.4495 GHz with an optical pulse of energy 15 mJ, is shown in Fig. 2. There is a short delay of the order of a microsecond until the microwave signal emerges, after which it oscillates with a period of around half a microsecond, whilst decaying at rate Γ over the course of 10 μs. Fourier analysis revealed a normal modesplitting (Rabi frequency) of Ω = 2g _{e} ≈ 2π × 1.8 MHz (see Fig. 2c), indicating that the cavity mode and collective spin state hybridise to form a collective spin–photon polariton and that the strong coupling condition is satisfied, with cooperativity C ~ 190. As the optical pump pulse energy was varied from 0 to 15 mJ to excite increasing numbers of pentacene molecules, the normalmode splitting increased as \(\sqrt N\) as shown in Fig. 2d, confirming the ensemble spin–photon coupling scaling predicted by the Tavis–Cummings model for a spinensemble.^{13}
Discussion
For a single excitation on resonance (ω _{c} = ω _{s}), the eigenstates are a coherent superposition of two basis states: the spin mode and the cavity mode. If \(\left 0 \right\rangle _{\mathrm{c}}\) and \(\left 1 \right\rangle _{\mathrm{c}}\) = a ^{†} \(\left 0 \right\rangle _{\mathrm{c}}\) are the possible states of the cavity mode and \(\left 0 \right\rangle _{\mathrm{s}}\) and \(\left 1 \right\rangle _{\mathrm{s}}\) = a ^{†} \(\left 0 \right\rangle _{\mathrm{s}}\) are the possible states of the spinmode, then the two eigenstates are \(\left + \right\rangle = \frac{1}{{\sqrt 2 }}\left( {\left 1 \right\rangle _{\mathrm{s}}\left 0 \right\rangle _{\mathrm{c}} + \left 0 \right\rangle _{\mathrm{s}}\left 1 \right\rangle _{\mathrm{c}}} \right)\) and \(\left  \right\rangle = \frac{1}{{\sqrt 2 }}\left( {\left 1 \right\rangle _{\mathrm{s}}\left 0 \right\rangle _{\mathrm{c}}  \left 0 \right\rangle _{\mathrm{s}}\left 1 \right\rangle _{\mathrm{c}}} \right)\), separated in energy by ħΩ = 2ħg _{e}. In this system, there are many more excitations so to describe the dynamical behaviour of the Dicke system we derived Lindblad master equations for the reduced spin–photon density matrix within the Born–Markov approximation.^{7,24,25} Here we used the Tavis–Cummings Hamiltonian and a Liouvillian that accounted for decoherence due to cavity decay, spin dephasing and spinlattice relaxation. A system of coupled differential equations was derived for the expectation values of relevant variables using a cumulant expansion truncated to thirdorder^{26} (see Supplementary Information). The dynamical behaviour of the expectation values of the cavity photon population, spin–photon coherence, spin–spin correlation and inversion are shown in Fig. 3, where the photon population \(\bar n = \left\langle {a^\dagger a} \right\rangle\) is in excellent agreement with that inferred from the measured microwave power. The delay between photoexcitation and the emergence of the first microwave burst is due to a prolonged period of stimulated emission since the number of excitations in the initial spin inversion (~10^{15}) greatly exceeds the number of thermal photons in the cavity mode (~10^{3}). This period of stimulated emission results in a microwave photon burst where the cavity mode photon population has similar magnitude to the number of spins N. It is also accompanied by a buildup of the spin–spin correlation \(\left\langle {\tilde S^ + \tilde S^  } \right\rangle\). The spins are not correlated initially but through stimulated emission of photons into the cavity mode they become increasingly correlated, leading to the establishment of a macroscopic collective spin–photon polariton. The maximum expectation value of the modelled spin–spin correlation, \(\left\langle {\tilde S^ + \tilde S^  } \right\rangle {\mathrm{/}}N \approx 0.15\) is close to the theoretical maximum of 0.25.^{1} The discrepancy is mostly due to the imperfect initialisation of the spin population polarisation. The collective spin–spin correlation \(\left\langle {\tilde S^ + \tilde S^  } \right\rangle\) also reveals the degree of transient multipartite entanglement within the symmetric Dicke states. The entanglement resulting from the ambiguity in being able to assign emission or absorption of photons to specific spins. For the N = 2 case, the maximally entangled \(\left( {\left {e,g} \right\rangle + \left {g,e} \right\rangle } \right){\mathrm{/}}\sqrt 2\) state is a Bell state. Once the collective polariton emerges there is coherent oscillatory exchange of excitations with the cavity mode at the Rabi frequency Ω, persisting for up to 10 μs.
The collective spin–photon polariton decay rate Γ as a function of Rabi frequency (for optical pump pulses in the 0–10 mJ range) is shown in Fig. 4. Above maser threshold where the cooperativity C > 1 and below the strong coupling regime threshold, the decay rate Γ increases until the Rabi frequency is equal to the sum of the cavity decay and spin decoherence rates, \(\Omega = 2g_{\mathrm{e}}\sim \kappa _{\mathrm{c}} + \kappa _{\mathrm{s}}\) and the decay rate \(\Gamma \sim \left( {\kappa _{\mathrm{c}} + \kappa _{\mathrm{s}}} \right){\mathrm{/}}2\). As the Rabi frequency (and ensemble spin–photon coupling) increases and the system goes further into the strongcoupling regime, the ensemble spin–photon polariton decay rate Γ begins decreasing asymptotically towards half the cavity decay rate, κ _{c}/2, implying that the spin dephasing rate is suppressed. This socalled “cavity protection” effect, associated with nonMarkovian memory effects, is attributed to inhomogeneous broadening of spin transitions with nonLorentzian lineshapes.^{10,11,12}
To conclude, this system, which was recently used to demonstrate a solidstate roomtemperature maser,^{19,20,23} also shows promise as a platform for exploring cavity quantum electrodynamics, spin memories for quantum information processing^{16} and quantumenhanced technologies for metrology, sensing and communications.^{27}
Methods
Experimental setup
The cavity was constructed from a hollow cylindrical singlecrystal of STO containing a 0.053% pentacenedoped pterphenyl crystal (diameter 3 mm, height 8 mm). The STO cylinder was placed upon a cylindrical sapphire disc and housed within a cylindrical copper enclosure. The cavity was directly coupled to a digital storage oscilloscope with 50 Ω impedance (Keysight MSOX6004 A, 20 GSa/s samplingrate, 6 GHz bandwidth) using a small loop antenna with coupling coefficient, k = 0.2. An additional weakly coupled (−35 dB) antenna, directional coupler (−20 dB) and amplifier (40 dB) allowed transmission measurements of the cavity to made using a vector network analyser (Agilent 8520E), revealing the resonant frequency and loaded qualityfactor (Q) of the TE_{01δ } mode to be \(\omega _{\mathrm{c}}\sim 2\pi \times 1.45\) GHz and 8,500 respectively. A Nd:YAG pumped OPO (Continuum Surelite Plus SL I20) generated 592 nm wavelength optical pulses of 5.5 ns duration and energy up to 15 mJ at a repetition rate of 10 Hz. The optical pump pulse energies were measured using a beam splitter and an optical energy metre (GentecEO Maestro). The expectation value of the photon number as a function of time was extracted from the measured microwave power P(t) using the expression \(\bar n(t) = \left\langle {a^\dagger a} \right\rangle = P(t)(1 + k){\mathrm{/}}\hbar \omega _{\mathrm{c}}\kappa _{\mathrm{c}}k,\) where k is the coupling coefficient (k = 0.2), ħ is the reduced Planck constant and ω _{c} and κ _{c} the cavity frequency and decay rate respectively.
Crystal growth
The pentacene:pterphenyl crystal was grown as per the previously reported method^{19,20} but with higher concentration of pentacene (see Supplementary Information for details).
