Authors: Pereira, L.; Garcia-Ripoll, J. J.; Ramos, T. Journal: NPJ QUANTUM INFORMATION Publication date: 2023/03/04 DOI: 10.1038/s41534-023-00688-7 Abstract: An efficient characterization of QND measurements is an important ingredient toward certifying and improving the performance and scalability of quantum processors. In this work, we introduce a parallel tomography of QND measurements that addresses single- and two-qubit [...]

Waveguide QED with Quadratic Light-Matter Interactions

Authors: Alushi, Uesli; Ramos, Tomas; Garcia-Ripoll, Juan Jose; Di Candia, Roberto; Felicetti, Simone Journal: PRX QUANTUM Publication date: 2023/08/25 DOI: 10.1103/PRXQuantum.4.030326 Abstract: Quadratic light-matter interactions are nonlinear couplings such that quantum emitters interact with photonic or phononic modes exclusively via the exchange of excitation pairs. Implementable with atomic and solid-state systems, these couplings lead to [...]

Spin Many-Body Phases in Standard- and Topological-Waveguide QED Simulators

2023-02-21T13:37:09+01:00Tags: , , |

Authors: Bello, M.; Platero, G.; Gonzalez-Tudela, A. Journal: PRX QUANTUM Publication date: 2022/03/07 DOI: 10.1103/PRXQuantum.3.010336 Abstract: Waveguide QED has emerged as a powerful analog quantum simulator due to the possibility of mediating versatile spin-spin interactions with tunable sign, range, and even dimerization. Yet, despite their potential, the many-body phases emerging from these systems have only [...]

Quenches to the critical point of the three-state Potts model: Matrix product state simulations and conformal field theory

2023-02-21T13:36:56+01:00Tags: , , , |

Authors: Robertson, Niall F.; Surace, Jacopo; Tagliacozzo, Luca Journal: PHYSICAL REVIEW B Publication date: 2022/05/04 DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevB.105.195103 Abstract: Conformal field theories (CFTs) have been used extensively to understand the physics of critical lattice models at equilibrium. However, the applicability of CFT calculations to the behavior of the lattice systems in the out-of-equilibrium setting is not [...]

The method exhibits a favorable scaling in the [...]

Role of boundary conditions in the full counting statistics of topological defects after crossing a continuous phase transition

Authors: Gomez-Ruiz, Fernando J.; Subires, David; del Campo, Adolfo Journal: PHYSICAL REVIEW B Publication date: 2022/10/10 DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevB.106.134302 Abstract: In a scenario of spontaneous symmetry breaking in finite time, topological defects are generated at a density that scales with the driving time according to the Kibble-Zurek mechanism (KZM). Signatures of universality beyond the KZM have [...]

Locality of spontaneous symmetry breaking and universal spacing distribution of topological defects formed across a phase transition

Authors: del Campo, Adolfo; Javier Gomez-Ruiz, Fernando; Zhang, Hai-Qing Journal: PHYSICAL REVIEW B Publication date: 2022/10/11 DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevB.106.L140101 Abstract: The crossing of a continuous phase transition results in the formation of topological defects with a density predicted by the Kibble-Zurek mechanism (KZM). We characterize the spatial distribution of pointlike topological defects in the resulting nonequilibrium [...]
