Abstract. A microscopic derivation of the master equation for the Jaynes-Cummings model with cavity losses is given, taking into account the terms in the dissipator which vary with frequencies of theâ€¦ (More)

A novel result concerning Raman coupling schemes implemented using trapped ions is obtained. By means of an operator perturbative approach, it is shown that the complete time evolution of theseâ€¦ (More)

New physical effects in the dynamics of an ion confined in an anisotropic two-dimensional Paul trap are reported. The link between the occurrence of such manifestations and the accumulation ofâ€¦ (More)

The possibility of revealing non-classical behaviours in the dynamics of a trapped ion via measurements of the mean value of suitable operators is reported. In particular we focus on theâ€¦ (More)

In this paper, we analyse a two-boson three-mode Jaynesâ€“Cummings model which can be implemented in the context of trapped ions. The symmetries of the Hamiltonian are brought to light and analysed inâ€¦ (More)

Since their introduction by Glauber in 1963 [1], coherent states have been deeply studied [2] due to the fact that, in some sense, the statistical properties related to the first momenta of theirâ€¦ (More)

Trapped ions provide an interesting physical scenario wherein fundamental aspects of quantum mechanics may be tested and useful applications in quantum computation may be realized [1]. Generallyâ€¦ (More)

In the spirit of quantum nondemolition measurement we show that repeatedly measuring the atomic state of a trapped ion subjected to suitable vibronic couplings it is possible to extract interestingâ€¦ (More)
