Conical intersections between electronic potential energy surfaces are paradigmatic for the study of nonadiabatic processes in the excited states of large molecules. However, since the corresponding dynamics occurs on a femtosecond timescale, their investigation remains challenging and requires ultrafast spectroscopy techniques. We demonstrate that trapped Rydberg ions are a platform to engineer conical intersections and to simulate their ensuing dynamics on larger length scales and timescales… Expand

Enhanced Parameter Estimation with Periodically Driven Quantum Probe
A quantum metrology protocol for measuring frequencies and weak forces based on a periodic modulating quantum Jahn–Teller system composed of a single spin and two bosonic modes is proposed, which allows it to perform parameter estimation with measurement time not limited by spin dephasing. Expand
Synthetic Dimension-Induced Conical Intersections in Rydberg Molecules.
It is observed that in the vicinity of a conical intersection, the Rydberg atom becomes nearly transparent to the ground-state atom, and the von Neumann-Wigner theorem is circumvented. Expand
