Abstract

The creation of TE-mode photons in a three-dimensional perfectly conducting cavity with one resonantly vibrating wall is studied numerically. We show that the creation of TE-mode photons in a rectangular cavity is related to the production of massive scalar particles on a time-dependent interval. The equations of motion are solved numerically which allows us to take into account the intermode coupling. We compare the numerical results with analytical predictions and discuss the effects of the intermode coupling in detail. The numerical simulations reveal that photon creation in a three-dimensional resonantly vibrating cavity can be maximized by arranging the size of the cavity such that certain conditions are realized. In particular, the creation of TE-mode photons in the lowest-frequency mode (1,1,1) is most efficient in a noncubic cavity where the size of the nondynamical dimensions is roughly 11 times larger than the size of the dynamical dimension. We discuss this effect and its relation to the intermode coupling in detail.
