Decoherence of quantum systems due to uncontrolled fluctuations of the environment presents fundamental obstacles in quantum science. Clock transitions which are insensitive to such fluctuations are used to improve coherence, however, they are not present in all systems or for arbitrary system parameters. Here we create a trio of synthetic clock transitions using continuous dynamical decoupling in a spin-1 Bose-Einstein condensate in which we observe a reduction of sensitivity to magnetic-field… Expand
Clock transition by continuous dynamical decoupling of a three-level system
This work presents a novel continuous dynamical decoupling scheme for the construction of a robust qubit in a three-level system and predicts that the coherence time may be prolonged towards the lifetime-limit using a relatively simple experimental setup. Expand
Continuously observing a dynamically decoupled spin-1 quantum gas
We continuously observe dynamical decoupling in a spin-1 quantum gas using a weak optical measurement of spin precession. Continuous dynamical decoupling modifies the character and energy spectrum ofExpand
Absence of heating in a uniform Fermi gas created by periodic driving.
Ultracold atoms are a powerful resource for quantum technologies. As such, they are usually confined in an external potential that often depends on the atomic spin, which may lead to inhomogeneousExpand
Perpetual emulation threshold of P T -symmetric Hamiltonians.
It is shown that it is possible to emulate the desired behaviour of the P T -symmetric Hamiltonian without depleting the reservoir levels, by including an additional coupling between them, which extends the emulation time indefinitely, when in the unbroken symmetry phase of the non-unitary P T dynamics.
