Abstract

In this thesis we present an analytic solution of non-Markovian dynamics for non-interacting photonic open quantum systems We explore the non-Markovian dynamics of such open quantum systems through the solutions of the exact master equation and carry out the detailed analysis of non-Markovian dynamics from these solutions By further analyzing these analytic solutions we capture the main features of the non-Markovian dynamics and categorize them into four different time evolution scenarios This provides a general picture on the quantum-to-classical transition which is caused by the environment-induced decoherence After the comprehensive discussions about the qualitative behaviors of non-Markovian decoherence dynamics we apply the theory to study the non-Markovian cavity dynamics in photonic crystals at finite temperature and explicitly show the influence of the photonic band gap on the cavity photon field
