A simple way to reconstruct the Wigner function

Héctor Manuel Moya Cessa (2013)

We show a simple mechanism to measure the Wigner function of a harmonic oscillator. For this system we also show that autocorrelation and Wigner functions are equivalent.

Perfect transfer of path-entangled photons in Jx photonic lattices

Héctor Manuel Moya Cessa (2013)

We demonstrate that perfect transfer of path-entangled photons as well as of single-photon states is possible in a certain class of spin inspired optical systems—the so-called Jx photonic lattices. In these fully integrable optical arrangements, perfect cyclic transitions from correlated states to totally anticorrelated states can naturally occur. Moreover we show that the bunching and antibunching response of path-entangled photons can be preengineered at will in such coupled optical arrangements. We elucidate these effects via pertinent examples.

Generating photon-encoded W states in multiport waveguide-array systems

Héctor Manuel Moya Cessa (2013)

We propose a versatile approach for generating multipartite W states in predesigned on-chip multiport photonic lattices. It is shown that is possible to produce photon-encoded W states where exactly one photon is coherently “shared” among N optical modes by judiciously adjusting the coupling coefficients involved in one-dimensional arrays of evanescently coupled single-mode waveguides. Two-dimensional waveguide configurations are also investigated as possible avenues to produce W states with equal probability amplitudes and equal relative phases.

The Glauber-Sudarshan and Kirkwood-Rihaczec functions

Héctor Manuel Moya Cessa (2013)

It is shown how to write the Kirkwood-Rihaczec quasiprobability distribution as an expectation value of the vacuum state. We do this, by writing the position eigenstates as a ”displacment” of the vacumm. We also give a relation between the Glauber-Sudarshan and Kirkwood-Rihaczec quasiprobability distributions.

Equivalence between mirror-field-atom and ion-laser interactions

FRANCISCO SOTO EGUIBAR Héctor Manuel Moya Cessa (2013)

We show that the interaction between a movable mirror with a quantized field that interacts with a two-level atom may be simplified via a transformation that involves Susskind-Glogower operators (SGO). By using this transformation it is easy to show that we can cast the Hamiltonian, after a unitary transformation, into a Hamiltonian that is equivalent to the ion-laser Hamiltonian. We would like to stress that the transformation in terms of SGO already simplifies enough the Hamiltonian in the sense that, in an exact way, it “eliminates” one of the three-subsystems, namely the quantized field.

Generation of MOON states in ion-laser interactions

FRANCISCO SOTO EGUIBAR Héctor Manuel Moya Cessa (2013)

A new class of entangled states, similar to N00N states is introduced. We call these states M00N states as the excitations shared in both subsystems do not need to be equal. The generation proposed here does not need conditional measurements, and therefore is achieved in a deterministic manner.

Coherent Quantum Transport in Photonic Lattices

Héctor Manuel Moya Cessa BLAS MANUEL RODRIGUEZ LARA (2013)

Transferring quantum states efficiently between distant nodes of an information processing circuit is of paramount importance for scalable quantum computing. We report on the first observation of a perfect state transfer protocol on a lattice, thereby demonstrating the general concept of transporting arbitrary quantum information with high fidelity. Coherent transfer over 19 sites is realized by utilizing judiciously designed optical structures consisting of evanescently coupled waveguide elements. We provide unequivocal evidence that such an approach is applicable in the quantum regime, for both bosons and fermions, as well as in the classical limit. Our results illustrate the potential of the perfect state transfer protocol as a promising route towards integrated quantum computing on a chip.

Photon transport in binary photonic lattices

BLAS MANUEL RODRIGUEZ LARA Héctor Manuel Moya Cessa (2013)

We present a review on the mathematical methods used to theoretically study classical propagation and quantum transport in arrays of coupled photonic waveguides. We focus on analysing two types of binary photonic lattices where selfenergies or couplings are alternated. For didactic reasons, we split the analysis in classical propagation and quantum transport but all methods can be implemented, mutatis mutandis, in any given case. On the classical side, we use coupled mode theory and present an operator approach to Floquet-Bloch theory in order to study the propagation of a classical electromagnetic field in two particular infinite binary lattices. On the quantum side, we study the transport of photons in equivalent finite and infinite binary lattices by couple mode theory and linear algebra methods involving orthogonal polynomials. Curiously the dynamics of finite size binary lattices can be expressed as roots and functions of Fibonacci polynomials.

Discrete-like diffraction dynamics in free space

FRANCISCO SOTO EGUIBAR SABINO CHAVEZ CERDA Héctor Manuel Moya Cessa (2013)

We introduce a new class of paraxial optical beams exhibiting discrete-like diffraction patterns reminiscent to those observed in periodic evanescently coupled waveguide lattices. It is demonstrated that such paraxial beams are analytically described in terms of generalized Bessel functions. Such effects are elucidated via pertinent examples.

The exact solution of generalized Dicke models via Susskind–Glogower operators

BLAS MANUEL RODRIGUEZ LARA Héctor Manuel Moya Cessa (2013)

We show a right unitary transformation approach based on Susskind– Glogower operators that diagonalizes a generalized Dicke Hamiltonian in the field basis and delivers a tridiagonal Hamiltonian in the Dicke basis. This tridiagonal Hamiltonian is diagonalized by a set of orthogonal polynomials satisfying a three-term recurrence relation. Our result is used to deliver a closed form, analytic time evolution for the case of a Jaynes–Cummings–Kerr model and to study the time evolution of the population inversion, reduced field entropy, and Husimi’s Q-function of the field for ensembles of interacting two-level systems under a Dicke–Kerr model.
