Abstract.  A scheme to observe direct experimental evidence of Jaynes–Cummings nonlinearities in a strongly dissipative cavity quantum electrodynamics system was devised. In such a system, large losses compete with the strong light-matter interaction. Comparing coherent and incoherent excitations of the system, it was shown that resonant excitation of the detuned emitter makes it possible to evidence few photon quantum nonlinearities in currently available experimental systems.
