Abstract : Values of both atomic and photon quasiparticle excitation energies and lifetimes are calculated for the model of a dilute gas of twolevel atoms interacting with the electromagnetic modes of a macroscopic enclosure. Interactions both linear and quadratic in the magnetic vector potential are included. Failure to make the rotating wave approximation leads directly to pairing in the system, holeelectron pairing in the atoms, photonphoton pairing in the electromagnetic modes. The pairing properties of the ground state of the interacting system are exhibited explicitly. Firstand secondorder intensity correlation functions are calculated for the ground state. (Author)
