The possibilities of quantum-optical spectrocopy are explored theoretically on the basis of an analytically solvable Jaynes-Cummings model. Like for semiconductors, thermal- and coherent-state excitations produce drastically different mater excitation that can be characterized through the re-radiation of light. The calculations show that matter dynamics can be sensitively monitored through distinct changes in the marginal quadrature distributions.
