    Photon echoes of molecular photoassociation

    Full text link
    Revivals of optical coherence of molecular photoassociation driven by two ultrashort laser pulses are addressed in the Condon approach. Based on textbook examples and numerical simulation of KrF excimer molecules, a prediction is made about an existence of photon echo on free-bound transitions. Delayed rise and fall of nonlinear polarization in the half-collisions are to be resulted from the resonant quantum states interference whether it be in gas, liquid or solid phases.Comment: 15 pages and 5 figures presented at ICONO '98'(Moscow, 1998): Fundamental Aspects of Laser-Matter Interaction, New Nonlinear Optical Materials and Physics of Low-Dimensional Structure

    Double Occupancy Errors in Quantum Computing Operations: Corrections to Adiabaticity

    We study the corrections to adiabatic dynamics of two coupled quantum dot spin-qubits, each dot singly occupied with an electron, in the context of a quantum computing operation. Tunneling causes double occupancy at the conclusion of an operation and constitutes a processing error. We model the gate operation with an effective two-level system, where non-adiabatic transitions correspond to double occupancy. The model is integrable and possesses three independent parameters. We confirm the accuracy of Dykhne's formula, a nonperturbative estimate of transitions, and discuss physically intuitive conditions for its validity. Our semiclassical results are in excellent agreement with numerical simulations of the exact time evolution. A similar approach applies to two-level systems in different contexts
