Abstract

Recent advances in nanostructure fabrication and optical control suggest that it will soon be possible to prepare collections of interacting two-level systems (i.e., qubits) within an optical cavity. Here we show theoretically that such systems could exhibit phase transition phenomena involving spin-glass phases. By contrast with traditional realizations using magnetic solids, these phase transition phenomena are associated with both matter and radiation subsystems. Moreover the various phase transitions should be tunable simply by varying the matter-radiation coupling strength.
