Multi-ion Mach-Zehnder interferometer with artificial nonlinear interactionsMay 03 2012We show how to implement a Mach-Zehnder interferometry based upon a string of trapped ions with artificial nonlinear interactions. By adiabatically sweeping down/up the coupling strength between two involved internal states of the ions, we could achieve ... More
Quantum speedup in a memory environmentNov 07 2013May 27 2014Memory (non-Markovian) effect is found to be able to accelerate quantum evolution [S. Deffner and E. Lutz, Phys. Rev. Lett. 111, 010402 (2013)]. In this work, for an atom in a structured reservoir, we show that the mechanism for the speedup is not only ... More
Observations of temporal group delays in slow-light multiple coupled photonic crystal cavitiesApr 20 2010We demonstrate temporal group delays in coherently-coupled high-Q multi-cavity photonic crystals, in an all-optical analogue to electromagnetically induced transparency. We report deterministic control of the group delay up to 4x the single cavity lifetime ... More
Entanglement of separate nitrogen-vacancy centers coupled to a whispering-gallery mode cavityOct 19 2010We present a quantum electrodynamical model involving nitrogen-vacancy centers coupled to a whispering-gallery mode cavity. Two schemes are considered to create W state and Bell state, respectively. One of the schemes makes use of the Raman transition ... More
Wigner solid pinning modes tuned by fractional quantum Hall states of a nearby layerOct 13 2018We study a bilayer system hosting exotic many-body states of two-dimensional electron systems (2DESs) in close proximity but isolated from one another by a thin barrier. One 2DES has low electron density and forms a Wigner solid (WS) at high magnetic ... More
Spin relaxation in diluted magnetic semiconductor quantum dotsJun 28 2005Jun 30 2005Electron spin relaxation induced by phonon-mediated s-d exchange interaction in a II-VI diluted magnetic semiconductor quantum dot is investigated theoretically. The electron-acoustic phonon interaction due to piezoelectric coupling and deformation potential ... More
