... (Color online) Sketch of adiabatic eigenstates during LZ sweep of a qubit that is coupled to one oscillator. Starting in the ground state |↑0〉 and by choosing a slow LZ sweep, a single photon can be created in the oscillator. Due to cavity decay, the one-photon state will decay to a zero-photon state. Then the reverse LZ sweep creates another single photon that eventually decays to the initial state |↑0〉. This is a cycle to create single photons that can be repeated.

Diagrammatic sketch of a qubit coupled with structured environments. The environment in the 1st case consists of a two level system coupled to a bath. The environment in 2nd case is a damped harmonic oscillator.
... (1st case) P(t) as a function of time for the on-resonance case (ΔA=ΔB), where the decoherence is enhanced with T. Inset (a): Fourier analysis of P(t). One can see that two frequencies are dominating the dynamics and the peaks locate at ΔA±g0. Inset (b): The effective spectral density Jeff(ω). Here, it is not πJeff(ΔA) but πJeff(ΔA±g0) indicates the damping rate γA.
... (2nd case) P(t) as a function of time, where the decoherence is enhanced with T. Inset (a): Fourier analysis of the main plot. One sees that two frequencies are dominating the dynamics and the splitting of the peaks increases with temperature. Inset (b): The effective spectral density Jeff(ω). The square, triangle and circle points correspond to the dominant frequencies of P(t) in different temperatures, respectively. One can see that smaller Jeff’s, which characterize long time dynamics, are almost the same for three different temperatures. This is the reason why the damping rate of P(t) is almost not changing with different temperatures.
