    Tavis-Cummings model and collective multi-qubit entanglement in trapped ions

    Get PDF
    We present a method of generating collective multi-qubit entanglement via global addressing of an ion chain following the guidelines of the Tavis-Cummings model, where several qubits are coupled to a collective motional mode. We show that a wide family of Dicke states and irradiant states can be generated by single global laser pulses, unitarily or helped with suitable postselection techniques.Comment: 6 pages, 3 figures.

    Efficient quantum simulation of fermionic and bosonic models in trapped ions

    Get PDF
    We analyze the efficiency of quantum simulations of fermionic and bosonic models in trapped ions. In particular, we study the optimal time of entangling gates and the required number of total elementary gates. Furthermore, we exemplify these estimations in the light of quantum simulations of quantum field theories, condensed-matter physics, and quantum chemistry. Finally, we show that trapped-ion technologies are a suitable platform for implementing quantum simulations involving interacting fermionic and bosonic modes, paving the way for overcoming classical computers in the near future.Comment: 13 pages, 3 figures.

    Strongly-Driven One-Atom Laser and Decoherence Monitoring

    We propose the implementation of a strongly-driven one-atom laser, based on the off-resonant interaction of a three-level atom in Λ\Lambda-configuration with a single cavity mode and three laser fields. We show that the system can be described equivalently by a two-level atom resonantly coupled to the cavity and driven by a strong effective coherent field. The effective dynamics can be solved exactly, including a thermal field bath, allowing an analytical description of field statistics and entanglement properties. We also show the possible generation of Schr\"odinger cat states for the whole atom-field system and for the field alone after atomic measurement. We propose a way to monitor the system decoherence by measuring atomic population. Finally, we confirm the validity of our model through numerical solutions.Comment: 9 pages, 7 figures Accepted in Phys. Rev.
