Together with the groups of Prof. Dr. Rupert Huber and Prof. Dr. Dominique Bougeard (University of Regensburg), we were able to reach record-breaking, deep-strong light-matter coupling with a coupling strength of up to 3.19. This, for the first time, creates vacuum ground state populations exceeding 1 virtual excitation quantum.

The results have been published in Nature Communications.
