The experiments of our group in optical cavity QED are characterized by the strong coupling of a small collection of atoms to a single mode of an optical resonator. Recent progress has led to systems in which the interaction of single atoms and cavity fields with an average photon number n ≪ 1 can be observed. Optical cavity QED thus offers unique possibilities to investigate quantum phenomena of the atom-field dynamics. Examples include nonlinear spectroscopy of the atom-cavity system with sub-photon fields, the generation of arbitrary states of the quantized radiation field, the efficient coupling of an atom to squeezed light and the detection of single atoms with high probability.
