16-20.12.2013: Visit of Christian Arenz

Christian Arenz (Aberystwyth University, Wales ) is visiting us and will give a talk in the Ctrl-q seminar about "Control of open quantum systems: Case study of the central spin model".

Abstract:
We study the controllability of a central spin guided by a classical field and interacting with a spin bath, showing that the central spin is fully controllable independently of the number of bath spins. Additionally we find that for unequal system-bath couplings even the bath becomes controllable by acting on the central spin alone. We then analyze numerically how the time to implement gates on the central spin scales with the number of bath spins and conjecture that for equal system-bath couplings it reaches a saturation value. We provide evidence that sometimes noise can be effectively suppressed through control.
