An important result from quantum optics and condensed matter physics is the use of radiation-matter interaction to produce light with specific characteristics. In this work, we study a nonstationary atom-cavity system and characterize the physical properties of the emitted light. In particular we deal with a Fabry-Perot cavity with a moving mirror which has an embedded two-level system. The study of the statistical properties is done by means of the second-order correlation function with zero delay, which allows to classify the light emitted by the physical system in three different statistical regimes (Poissonian, sub-Poissonian and super-Poissonian) depending on the relationship between the variance and the mean of the photon number distribution. Therefore, in a range of parameters for which the extraction of excitations from the quantum vacuum is evident, we find that the non-classicality of the emitted light depends strongly on the relationship between the radiation-matter coupling constant and the frequency of modulation of the length of the cavity.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for most presentations.
