Dynamics of a twolevel trapped ion in a cavity
Abstract
In the present paper we consider the case of a twolevel ion in a cavity in the presence of a single mode field linearly polarized. We suppose that the ion is free to move along the polarization direction and trapped by a harmonic potential along the other two directions. By multiple path integration we derive the density matrix of the system and we study its dynamics. We assume an initial electromagnetic vacuum. This initial condition for the present system, compared with any other initial photonic state, gives new and higher order leading terms with respect to an expansion in powers of the inverse of the volume. Further after such an expansion there appears a first order term that originates from the combined interaction of the twolevel system (qubit) with the quantum motion of the ion and the electromagnetic field in the cavity. We notice that the dynamics of the present system is very rich and can be studied exhaustively in the present framework.

The dynamics of a twolevel atom driven by a single laser beam and threelevel atom (Lambda configuration) irradiated by two laser beams are studied taking into account of the quantized centerofmass motion of the atom. It is shown that the trapped atom system under appropriate resonance condition exhibits the large timescale revivals when the index of the vibrational sideband responsible for the atomic electronic transition is greater than unity. The revival times are shown to be dependent on the initial number of vibrational excitations and the magnitude of the LambDicke parameter. The subPoissonian statistics in vibrational quantum number is observedmore »

Dynamics of a single trapped ion inside a nonideal QED cavity at zero temperature
We consider a system consisting of a single ion in a Paul trap coupled to a cavity electromagnetic field mode. We analyze the fidelity of a scheme for quantum swapping between vibrational and cavity field states, when the system is in contact with a reservoir at zero temperature. 
Correlated motion of two atoms trapped in a singlemode cavity field
We study the motion of two atoms trapped at distant positions in the field of a driven standingwave highQ optical resonator. Even without any direct atomatom interaction the atoms are coupled through their position dependent influence on the intracavity field. For sufficiently good trapping and low cavity losses the atomic motion becomes significantly correlated and the two particles oscillate in their wells preferentially with a 90 deg. relative phase shift. The onset of correlations seriously limits cavity cooling efficiency, raising the achievable temperature to the Doppler limit. The physical origin of the correlation can be traced back to a cavitymore » 
Generation of entanglement and squeezing in the system of two ions trapped in a cavity
The dynamical behavior of the entanglement and the squeezing in the system of two ions trapped in a lossy optical cavity is discussed, in which the vibrational mode of the first ion is coupled to the cavity field via a linearmixing interaction and the vibrational mode of the second ion is coupled to the cavity field via an effective parametric interaction, respectively. It is found that when the effective strength r{sub 1} of the coupling between the first ion and the cavity field is stronger than the strength r{sub 2} of the coupling between the second ion and the cavitymore » 
Deterministic generation of a pure continuousvariable entangled state for two ions trapped in a cavity
Two different schemes are proposed for deterministically generating a pure motionentangled state for two wellseparated 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 twomode 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 singlemode cavity, it allows us to produce a twomode squeezed vacuum state for the trapped ions' centerofmassmore »
