Shortcuts to adiabaticity (STA) are a collection of quantum control techniques that achieve high fidelity outside of the adiabatic regime. Recently an extension to shortcuts to adiabaticity was proposed by the authors [Phys. Rev. Research 2, 023360 (2020)]. This new method, enhanced shortcuts to adiabaticity (eSTA), provides an extension to the original STA control functions and allows effective control of systems not amenable to STA methods. It is conjectured that eSTA schemes also enjoy an…

Coherent Atom Transport via Enhanced Shortcuts to Adiabaticity: Double-Well Optical Lattice

Theoretical studies of coherent atom transport have as yet mainly been restricted to one-dimensional model systems with harmonic trapping potentials. Here we investigate this important phenomenon – a

Fast transport of Bose–Einstein condensates in anharmonic traps

We present a method to transport Bose–Einstein condensates (BECs) in anharmonic traps and in the presence of atom–atom interactions in short times without residual excitation. Using a combination of



Realistic shortcuts to adiabaticity in optical transfer

Shortcuts to adiabaticity are techniques allowing rapid variation of the system Hamiltonian without inducing excess heating. Fast optical transfer of atoms between different locations is an important

Fast and robust particle shuttling for quantum science and technology

We review methods to shuttle quantum particles fast and robustly. Ideal robustness amounts to the invariance of the desired transport results with respect to deviations, noisy or otherwise, from the

Noise Sensitivities for an Atom Shuttled by a Moving Optical Lattice via Shortcuts to Adiabaticity

The noise sensitivities of a particle shuttled by an optical lattice that moves according to a shortcut-to-adiabaticity transport protocol are found and are focused on the white-noise limit as a basic reference, and on Ornstein–Uhlenbeck noise to account for the effect of non-zero correlation times.

Optimal control of complex atomic quantum systems

This work computing theoretically and verifying experimentally the optimal transformations in two very different interacting systems: the coherent manipulation of motional states of an atomic Bose-Einstein condensate and the crossing of a quantum phase transition in small systems of cold atoms in optical lattices.

Optimally robust shortcuts to population inversion in two-level quantum systems

We examine the stability versus different types of perturbations of recently proposed shortcuts to adiabaticity to speed up the population inversion of a two-level quantum system. We find the

All quantum systems are subject to noise and imperfections due to stray fields, inhomogeneities or drifting experimental controls. An understanding of the effects of noise and decoherence is critical

Speeding up the spatial adiabatic passage of matter waves in optical microtraps by optimal control

The ultimate limits of the optimal control in speeding up the transport process in a triple well configuration for both a single atomic wave packet and a Bose-Einstein condensate are investigated within a regime of experimental parameters achievable with current optical technology.

Fast and stable manipulation of a charged particle in a Penning trap

We propose shortcuts to adiabaticity to achieve fast and stable control of the state of a charged particle in an electromagnetic field. In particular we design a non-adiabatic change of the magnetic

Optimal shortcuts for atomic transport in anharmonic traps

We design fast trap trajectories to transport cold atoms in anharmonic traps, combining invariant-based inverse engineering, perturbation theory, and optimal control theory. Among the ideal

The European Quantum Technologies Roadmap

An updated summary of the QT Roadmap is presented, including sections on Quantum Theory and Software, and on Quantum Control, as both are important areas of research that cut across all four domains.
