Authors: Goicoechea, Javier R.; Roncero, Octavio Journal: ASTRONOMY & ASTROPHYSICS Publication date: 2022/08/31 DOI: 10.1051/0004-6361/202243884 Abstract: The formation of hydrides by gas-phase reactions between H-2 and a heavy element atom is a very selective process. Reactions with ground-state neutral carbon, oxygen, nitrogen, and sulfur atoms are very endoergic and have high energy barriers because the [...]

Tuning Long-Range Fermion-Mediated Interactions in Cold-Atom Quantum Simulators

2023-02-21T13:36:09+01:00Tags: , |

Authors: Arguello-Luengo, Javier; Gonzalez-Tudela, Alejandro; Gonzalez-Cuadra, Daniel Journal: PHYSICAL REVIEW LETTERS Publication date: 2022/08/17 DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevLett.129.083401 Abstract: Engineering long-range interactions in cold-atom quantum simulators can lead to exotic quantum many -body behavior. Fermionic atoms in ultracold atomic mixtures can act as mediators, giving rise to long-range Ruderman-Kittel-Kasuya-Yosida-type interactions characterized by the dimensionality and density of [...]

Variational Determination of Multiqubit Geometrical Entanglement in Noisy Intermediate-Scale Quantum Computers

2023-02-21T13:36:27+01:00Tags: , |

Authors: Munoz-Moller, A. D.; Pereira, L.; Zambrano, L.; Cortes-Vega, J.; Delgado, A. Journal: PHYSICAL REVIEW APPLIED Publication date: 2022/08/17 DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevApplied.18.024048 Abstract: Current noise levels in physical realizations of qubits and quantum operations limit the applicability of conventional methods to characterize entanglement. In this adverse scenario, we follow a quantum variational approach to estimate the [...]

Multiqudit interactions in molecular spins

Authors: Gomez-Leon, Alvaro Journal: PHYSICAL REVIEW A Publication date: 2022/08/15 DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevA.106.022609 Abstract: We study photon-mediated interactions between molecular spin qudits in the dispersive regime of operation. We derive from a microscopic model the effective interaction between molecular spins, including their crystal field anisotropy (i.e., the presence of nonlinear spin terms) and their multilevel structure.

Authors: Lozano, Ana I.; Kossoski, Fabris; Blanco, Francisco; Limao-Vieira, Paulo; Varella, Marcio T. do N.; Garcia, Gustavo Journal: JOURNAL OF PHYSICAL CHEMISTRY LETTERS Publication date: 2022/08/04 DOI: 10.1021/acs.jpclett.2c01704 Abstract: Low-energy electrons (LEEs) can very efficiently induce bond breaking via dissociative electron attachment (DEA). While DEA is ubiquitous, the importance of other reactions initiated by LEEs [...]

Stochastic Bohmian and Scaled Trajectories

Journal: FOUNDATIONS OF PHYSICS Publication date: 2022/08/01 DOI: 10.1007/s10701-022-00598-2 Abstract: In this review we deal with open (dissipative and stochastic) quantum systems within the Bohmian mechanics framework which has the advantage to provide a clear picture of quantum phenomena in terms of trajectories, originally in configuration space. The gradual [...]
