    Abstract: The article gives a succinct historical review of the evolution of physical concepts in photonics and light-matter coupling during the 20th century with special emphasis on noteworthy contributions made by a prominent Ukrainian theoretician Kirill Tolpygo, whose centenary will be celebrated next year. We dwell in detail on the history of elaboratio... Show More

    Abstract: The diagonalization of the two-body Hamiltonian has been performed by the Green function method and the polariton spectrum has been found. The result is analogous to that found by the Bogolyubov-Tyablikov method of diagonalization. Besides, the spectrum of Bose-Einstein condensate (BEC) of the excitons has been calculated. It is shown how the spect... Show More
  • Photon-Assisted Shot Noise in Normal Metal-Insulator-Superconductor Heterostructures

    Abstract: Photon-assisted electron transport in mesoscopic heterostructures is studied via a scattering approach. The nonequilibrium current fluctuations of normal metal-insulator-superconductor systems under illumination with monochromatic microwaves have been calculated. Using a time-periodic potential applied across the tunnel junction we model the emissi... Show More
