Abstract Decoherence of a qubit system interacting with a bosonic reservoir is considered when there is at most one excitation in the whole system and there is an initial correlation with theExpand
Disentanglement of two-qubit system in the Bloch channel
Abstract Disentanglement of two qubits is studied in the relaxation process characterized by the longitudinal and transversal relaxation times, T 1 and T 2 , which satisfy the inequality T 2  ≤ 2 T 1Expand


Observation of a Rapidly Pulsating Radio Source
Unusual signals from pulsating radio sources have been recorded at the Mullard Radio Astronomy Observatory. The radiation seems to come from local objects within the galaxy, and may be associatedExpand
