Fermionicmode entanglement in nonMarkovian environment
Abstract
We evaluate the nonMarkovian effects on the entanglement dynamics of a fermionic system interacting with two dissipative vacuum reservoirs. The exact solution of density matrix is derived by utilizing the Feynman–Vernon influence functional theory in the fermionic coherent state representation and the Grassmann calculus, which are valid for both the fermionic and bosonic baths, and their difference lies in the dependence of the parity of the initial states. The fermionic entanglement dynamics is presented by adding an additional restriction to the density matrix known as the superselection rules. Our analysis shows that the usual decoherence suppression schemes implemented in qubits systems can also be achieved for systems of identical fermions, and the initial state proves its importance in the evolution of fermionic entanglement. Our results provide a potential way to decoherence controlling of identical fermions.

Entanglement swapping of twomode Gaussian states is investigated by use of quantum teleportation protocol of continuous variables. In the entanglement swapping protocol, we take the twomode squeezed vacuum which is exposed in a thermal environment as a mixedquantumchannel state and a twomode standard form Gaussian state as an input state to be teleported. When the input state is pure, we find that the swapped state is inseparable if and only if both the input state and the quantumchannel state are entangled. When the input state is mixed and entangled, we find that the swapped state is inseparable only if themore »

Quantum entanglement of symmetrically decohered twomode squeezed states in an absorbing and amplifying environment
We investigate the properties of quantum entanglement of twomode squeezed states interacting with symmetric linear baths with general gain and loss parameters. By explicitly solving for {rho} from the master equation, we determine analytical expressions of eigenvalues and eigenvectors of {rho}{sup T{sub A}} (the partial transposition of density matrix {rho}). In Fock space, {rho}{sup T{sub A}} is shown to maintain a block diagonal structure as the system evolves. In addition, we discover that the decoherence induced by the baths would break the degeneracy of {rho}{sup T{sub A}}, and leads to a set of eigenvectors for the construction of entanglement witnessmore » 
Entanglement of formation in twomode Gaussian systems in a thermal environment
In the framework of the theory of open systems based on completely positive quantum dynamical semigroups, we give a description of the continuous variable entanglement for a system consisting of two noninteracting bosonic modes embedded in a thermal environment. The calculated measure of entanglement is entanglement of formation. We describe the evolution of entanglement in terms of the covariance matrix for symmetric Gaussian input states. In the case of an entangled initial squeezed thermal state, entanglement suppression (entanglement sudden death) takes place, for all nonzero temperatures of the thermal bath. After that, the system remains for all times in amore » 
Modeselective excitation of hydrogen atoms on a Si surface: NonMarkovian and Markovian treatment of infrared laser driven dissipative quantum dynamics
Modeselective excitation of adsorbates by shaped infrared laser pulses is investigated here theoretically, for the example of a H atom on a hydrogencovered Si(100)2x1 surface. The modeselective excitation is perturbed by the intermode coupling within the system (bending and stretching modes) and by systembath coupling to substrate phonons. Using a forcefield based model, vibrationphonon coupling was found and predicted to lead to vibrational relaxation of the HSi stretching mode on a ns timescale, and of the SiSiH bending mode on a ps timescale [I. Andrianov and P. Saalfrank, J. Chem. Phys. 124, 034710 (2006)]. To address the question as tomore » 
NonMarkovian qubit dynamics in a thermal field bath: Relaxation, decoherence, and entanglement
We study the nonMarkovian dynamics of a qubit made up of a twolevel atom interacting with an electromagnetic field (EMF) initially at finite temperature. Unlike most earlier studies where the bath is assumed to be fixed, we study the complete evolution of the combined qubitEMF system, thus allowing for the coherent backaction from the bath on the qubit and the qubit on the bath in a selfconsistent manner. In this way we can see the development of quantum correlations and entanglement between the system and its environment, and how that affects the decoherence and relaxation of the system. We findmore »
