Landau-Zener-Stückelberg interference in coherent charge oscillations of a one-electron double quantum dot
It is demonstrated that it is essential to take into account LZS interference for both precise control of charge qubits and correct interpretation of measurement results in coherent charge oscillations of a one-electron semiconductor double quantum dot using standard rectangular voltage pulses.
Observation of coherent oscillation in single-passage Landau-Zener transitions
This work shows that using the well-known Landau-Zener formula in the vicinity of an avoided energy-level crossing will cause considerable errors due to coherent oscillation of the transition probability in a single-passage LZT experiment.
Polariton condensate and Landau-Zener-Stückelberg interferometry transition in multilayer transition metal dichalcogenides
This paper gives a detailed description of a high-performance polariton condensate for a quantum mechanical two-level system (TLS). We propose a transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs) setup and
Landau-Zener-Stückelberg interferometry in dissipative circuit quantum electrodynamics
We study Landau-Zener-St\"uckelberg (LZS) interferometry in a cQED architecture under effects of dissipation. To be specific, we consider a superconducting qubit driven by a dc+ac signal and coupled
Landau-Zener-Stückelberg-Majorana Interferometry of a Single Hole.
Landau-Zener-Stückelberg-Majorana spectroscopy on a system with strong spin-orbit interaction (SOI), realized as a single hole confined in a gated double quantum dot, reveals complex photon-assisted tunneling pathways, both spin conserving and spin flip, which form closed loops at critical magnetic fields.
Landau-Zener-Stückelberg Interferometry for Majorana Qubit
It is shown that the time evolution of superconducting phase difference at the junction under a voltage bias induces an oscillation in energy levels of the Majorana parity states, whereas the level-crossing is avoided by a small coupling energy of MQs in the individual 1D superconductors.
Stückelberg interference in a superconducting qubit under periodic latching modulation
When the level separation of a qubit is modulated periodically across an avoided crossing, tunneling to the excited state—and consequently Landau–Zener–Stückelberg interference—can occur. The types
Landau–Zener–Stückelberg–Majorana interference of a spin-orbit-coupled Bose–Einstein condensate
The spin-orbit-coupled (SOC) ultracold atomic gases provide unique opportunities for exploring exotic quantum phases and introduce new capabilities into the quantum simulation. In this paper, we
Revealing the system-bath coupling via Landau-Zener-Stückelberg interferometry in superconducting qubits
In this work we propose a way to unveil the type of environmental noise in strongly driven superconducting flux qubits through the analysis of the Landau-Zener-Stuckelberg (LZS) interferometry. We


Effect of environmental spins on Landau-Zener transitions
Landau-Zener (LZ) transitions of a two-level system (e. g., electronic spin in molecular magnets) coupled to one or many environmental spins (e. g., nuclear spins) are studied. For rather general
Continuous-time monitoring of Landau-Zener interference in a cooper-pair box.
Experimental evidence of quantum interference effects in solid-state LZ tunneling using a Cooper-pair box qubit is presented and it is found that the average level occupancies depend on the dynamical phase.
Landau–Zener transitions in qubits controlled by electromagnetic fields
We investigate the influence of a dipole interaction with a classical radiation field on a qubit during a continuous change of a control parameter. In particular, we explore the non-adiabatic
Dynamics of periodic anticrossings: Decoherence, pointer states, and hysteresis curves
We consider a strongly driven two-level (spin) system, with a periodic external field that induces a sequence of avoided level crossings. The spin system interacts with a bosonic reservoir which
Nuclear state preparation via Landau-Zener-Stückelberg transitions in double quantum dots.
This work theoretically model a nuclear-state preparation scheme that increases the coherence time of a two-spin qubit in a double quantum dot and simulates a system with up to n=200 nuclear spins per dot, finding that in addition to a small nuclear polarization that weakly affects the electron spin coherence, the slow sweeps are only partially adiabatic and lead to a weak nuclear spin measurement.
Landau-Zener interferometry for qubits
Abstract.One may probe coherence of a qubit by periodically sweeping its control parameter. The qubit is then excited by the Landau-Zener (LZ) mechanism. The interference between multiple LZ
Temporal Interferometry: A Mechanism for Controlling Qubit Transitions During Twisted Rapid Passage
In an adiabatic rapid passage experiment, the Bloch vector of a two-level system ~qubit! is inverted by slowly inverting an external field to which it is coupled, and along which it is initially

We study Landau-Zener transitions in a qubit coupled to a bath at zero temperature. A general formula that is applicable to models with a nondegenerate ground state is derived. We calculate exact
