Title: The quantum state of a pair of isotopes coupled by simultaneous spontaneous emission in a magnetic field

Abstract

The steady state of a pair of isotopes resulting from the incoherent process of excitation-de-excitation and spontaneous decay is found. When the applied magnetic field corresponds to resonance between Zeeman sublevels in the pair, simultaneous spontaneous decay induces interatomic correlations. The resulting state belongs to the class of states with positive partial transpose. One consequence of the correlations is a redistribution of the probabilities for the directions of spontaneous emission at the resonant transition frequency.

  • Using classical mechanical and quantum Monte Carlo methods we trace the ground-state behavior with an applied magnetic field of localized electron pair states in a quantum dot. By developing a method to treat nonconserved paramagnetic interactions using variational and diffusion quantum Monte Carlo techniques we find (i) a single-triplet transition at very small magnetic field strengths, (ii) enhanced localization of the two electrons with increasing magnetic field, and (iii) a mechanism for pair breakup that is different from that proposed recently by Wan {ital et al.} [Phys. Rev. Lett. {bold 75}, 2879 (1995)]. {copyright} {ital 1998} {ital The American Physicalmore » Society}« less
  • The spontaneous emission spectrum of a three-level {Lambda}-type atom driven by a microwave field was studied. For the two transitions coupled to the same modified reservoir, we discussed the influence of photonic band gap and Rabi frequency of the microwave field on the emission spectrum. The emission spectrum is given for different locations of the upper band-edge frequency. With the transition frequencies moving from outside the band gap to inside, the number of peaks decreases in the emission spectrum and the multipeak structure of spectral line is finally replaced by a strong non-Lorentzian shape. With increase of the Rabi frequencymore » of the microwave field, we find the spectral line changes from a multipeak structure to a two-peak structure, originating from the inhibition of spontaneous emission for the corresponding decay channel.« less
  • The impact of ground state amplification on the laser emission of In(Ga)As quantum dot excited state lasers is studied in time-resolved experiments. We find that a depopulation of the quantum dot ground state is followed by a drop in excited state lasing intensity. The magnitude of the drop is strongly dependent on the wavelength of the depletion pulse and the applied injection current. Numerical simulations based on laser rate equations reproduce the experimental results and explain the wavelength dependence by the different dynamics in lasing and non-lasing sub-ensembles within the inhomogeneously broadened quantum dots. At high injection levels, the observedmore » response even upon perturbation of the lasing sub-ensemble is small and followed by a fast recovery, thus supporting the capacity of fast modulation in dual-state devices.« less
  • Starting from Wigner's symmetry representation theorem, we give a general account of discrete symmetries (parity P, charge conjugation C, time-reversal T), focusing on fermions in Quantum Field Theory. We provide the rules of transformation of Weyl spinors, both at the classical level (grassmanian wave functions) and quantum level (operators). Making use of Wightman's definition of invariance, we outline ambiguities linked to the notion of classical fermionic Lagrangian. We then present the general constraints cast by these transformations and their products on the propagator of the simplest among coupled fermionic system, the one made with one fermion and its antifermion. Last,more » we put in correspondence the propagation of C eigenstates (Majorana fermions) and the criteria cast on their propagator by C and CP invariance.« less
