Title: Surveying the nucleon-nucleon momentum correlation function in the framework of quantum molecular dynamics model

Abstract

Momentum correlation functions of nucleon-nucleon pairs are presented for reactions with C isotopes bombarding a {sup 12}C target within the framework of the isospin-dependent quantum molecular dynamics model. The binding-energy dependence of the momentum correlation functions is also explored, and other factors that have an influence on momentum correlation functions are investigated. These factors include momentum-dependent nuclear equations of state, in-medium nucleon-nucleon cross sections, impact parameters, total pair momenta, and beam energy. In particular, the rise and the fall of the strength of momentum correlation functions at lower relative momentum are shown with an increase in beam energy.

  • We study the quantum correlation and classical correlation dynamics in a spin-boson model. For two different forms of spectral density, we obtain analytical results and show that the evolutions of both correlations depend closely on the form of the initial state. At the end of evolution, all correlations initially stored in the spin system transfer to reservoirs. It is found that, for a large family of initial states, quantum correlation remains equal to the classical correlation during the course of evolution. In addition, there is no increase in the correlations during the course of evolution.
  • The preequilibrium (nucleon-in, nucleon-out) angular distributions of {sup 27}Al, {sup 58}Ni, and {sup 90}Zr have been analyzed in the energy region from 90 to 200 MeV in terms of the quantum moleculear dynamics theory. First, we show that the present approach can reproduce the measured ({ital p},{ital xp}{sup {prime}}) and ({ital p},{ital xn}) angular distributions leading to continuous final states without adjusting any parameters. Second, we show results of a detailed study of the preequilibrium reaction processes, the stepwise contributions to the angular distribution, comparisons with the quantum-mechanical Feshbach-Kerman-Koonin theory, and the effects of momentum distribution and surface refraction/reflection tomore » the quasifree scattering. Finally, the present method was used to assess the importance of multiple preequilibrium particle emission as a function of projectile energy up to 1 GeV. {copyright} {ital 1996 The American Physical Society.}« less
  • During the long course of evolution, nature has learnt how to exploit quantum effects. In fact, recent experiments reveal the existence of quantum processes whose coherence extends over unexpectedly long time and space ranges. In particular, photosynthetic processes in light-harvesting complexes display a typical oscillatory dynamics ascribed to quantum coherence. Here, we consider the simple model where a dimer made of two chromophores is strongly coupled with a quasi-resonant vibrational mode. We observe the occurrence of wide oscillations of genuine quantum correlations, between electronic excitations and the environment, represented by vibrational bosonic modes. Such a quantum dynamics has been unveiledmore » through the calculation of the negativity of entanglement and the discord, indicators widely used in quantum information for quantifying the resources needed to realize quantum technologies. We also discuss the possibility of approximating additional weakly-coupled off-resonant vibrational modes, simulating the disturbances induced by the rest of the environment, by a single vibrational mode. Within this approximation, one can show that the off-resonant bath behaves like a classical source of noise.« less
