Operator-based derivation of phonon modes and characterization of correlations for trapped ions at zero and finite temperature

  journal={Physical Review B},
We present a self-contained operator-based approach to derive the spectrum of trapped ions. This approach provides the complete normal form of the low energy quadratic Hamiltonian in terms of bosonic phonons, as well as an effective free particle degree of freedom for each spontaneously broken spatial symmetry. We demonstrate how this formalism can directly be used to characterize an ion chain both in the linear and the zigzag regimes. In particular we compute, both for the ground state and…

Quantum simulation of extended polaron models using compound atom-ion systems

We consider the prospects for quantum simulation of condensed matter models exhibiting strong electron-phonon coupling using a hybrid platform of trapped laser-cooled ions interacting with an

Quantum simulation of extended electron-phonon-coupling models in a hybrid Rydberg atom setup

State-of-the-art experiments using Rydberg atoms can now operate with large numbers of trapped particles with tunable geometry and long coherence time. We propose a way to utilize this in a hybrid
