Authors: Sanchez-Burillo, E.; Martin-Moreno, L.; Garcia-Ripoll, J. J.; Zueco, D. Contribution: Article Journal: PHYSICAL REVIEW LETTERS Publication date: 2019/07/01 DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevLett.123.013601 Abstract: Heisenberg's uncertainty principle implies that the quantum vacuum is not empty but fluctuates. These fluctuations can be converted into radiation through nonadiabatic changes in the Hamiltonian. Here, we discuss how to control this vacuum [...]
