Title: Effect of vibrational heating on the entangled field from an ion trapped in a bimodal cavity

Abstract

The influence of the vibrational heating of a single cold ion trapped in a bimodal cavity under continuous excitation on the generation of two-mode squeezing and entanglement of the cavity field from the ion is discussed. It is found that the vibrational heating gives a strong limitation for the appearance of the two-mode squeezing, but the two cavity modes can develop into a robust entangled Gaussian state.

  • We propose schemes for the deterministic preparation of pure multipartite entangled vibrational states for N ions trapped in a single-mode cavity. Through sequentially sending lasers with appropriate phases and amplitudes to drive the ions, two kinds of pure multipartite entangled continuous variable entangled states respectively suggested by van Loock and Braunstein [Phys. Rev. Lett. 84, 3482 (2000)] and Pfister et al. [Phys. Rev. A 70, 020302(R) (2004)] can be unconditionally prepared with the help of cavity dissipation.
  • We propose a simplified scheme to teleport a superposition of coherent states from one mode to another of the same bimodal lossy cavity. Based on current experimental capabilities, we present a calculation of the fidelity that can be achieved, demonstrating accurate teleportation if the mean photon number of each mode is at most 1.5. Our scheme applies as well for teleportation of coherent states from one mode of a cavity to another mode of a second cavity, when both cavities are embedded in a common reservoir.
  • The effect of ambient magnetic fields on the dynamics of a single trapped ion is studied analytically. We consider two electronic states with energy separation stochastically varied by magnetic-field perturbations and coupled to the vibrational modes by a laser. For Gaussian white noise, a master equation is derived and solved. The results obtained reveal how the effective Rabi frequencies and the decay rates depend on the noise strength and on the number state index. The detection of features specific to magnetic-field noise in the evolution of states that can be prepared under standard experimental conditions is discussed. A comparison withmore » the effects of laser intensity and phase fluctuations is presented. Implications for the realization of logic gates are analyzed.« less
  • Two different schemes are proposed for deterministically generating a pure motion-entangled state for two well-separated ions trapped in a cavity. The first one is that through adjusting the amplitudes and the frequencies of transverse lasers, the two ions trapped in a bimodal cavity can unconditionally evolve into a two-mode squeezed vacuum state with the aid of the cavity dissipation. The second one is based on the interactions of two appropriate series of the driving laser pulses with the two ions trapped in a single-mode cavity, it allows us to produce a two-mode squeezed vacuum state for the trapped ions' center-of-massmore » motion.« less
  • A general formula for the nonlocal absorption power of trapped ions averaged over a magnetic surface in ion cyclotron radio-frequency (ICRF) heating is derived. The gyrokinetic equation is adopted and a full particle orbit and wave coupling are kept. The resulting expression for a Maxwellian plasma in tokamaks is compared with Stix's theory (Nucl. Fusion {bold 15}, 737(1975)), which shows that Stix's theory is rather good for the fundamental cyclotron frequency heating and the nonlocal effect is not negligible for the second-harmonic cyclotron frequency heating.
