An experiment based on a trapped ytterbium ion validates the inertial theorem for the SU(2) algebra. The qubit is encoded within the hyperfine states of the atom and controlled by RF fields. The inertial theorem generates analytical solutions for non-adiabatically driven systems that are ‘accelerated’ slowly, bridging the gap between the sudden and adiabatic limits. These solutions are shown to be stable to small deviations, both experimentally and theoretically. By encoding a two-level system…

Validation of quantum adiabaticity through non-inertial frames and its trapped-ion realization
This work introduces a validation mechanism for the adiabatic approximation by driving the quantum system to a non-inertial reference frame, and proves that this validation mechanism can be extended for general multi-particle quantum systems, establishing the conditions for the equivalence of the aduabatic behavior as described in inertial or non- inertial frames.
General conditions for quantum adiabatic evolution
Adiabaticity occurs when, during its evolution, a physical system remains in the instantaneous eigenstate of the Hamiltonian. Unfortunately, existing results, such as the quantum adiabatic theorem
