Abstract

We discuss quantum interference phenomena in a system consisting of a laser driven three-level ladder-type emitter possessing orthogonal transition dipoles and embedded in a leaking optical resonator. The cavity mean-photon number vanishes due to the destructive nature of the interference phenomena. The effect occurs for some particular parameter regimes that were identified. Furthermore, upper bare-state population inversion occurs as well.
