Universal quantum fluctuations of a cavity mode driven by a Josephson

A. D. Armour, M. P. Blencowe, E. Brahimi, A. J. Rimberg
We analyze the quantum dynamics of a superconducting cavity coupled to a voltage biased Josephson junction. The cavity is strongly excited at resonances where the voltage energy lost by a Cooper pair traversing the circuit is a multiple of the cavity photon energy. We find that the resonances are accompanied by substantial squeezing of the quantum fluctuations of the cavity over a broad range of parameters and are able to identify regimes where the fluctuations in the system take on universal values.
