Quantum Information Processing with Atoms and Photons

In this thesis, we present new tools for the study of quantum systems and propose several novel schemes for practical applications in quantum information science. We explore two main topics,

Exploring strongly correlated quantum many‐body systems with ultracold atoms in optical lattices

Ultracold quantum gases in optical lattices can be used as novel model system for the exploration of strongly correlated many‐body phases of bosonic or fermionic particles. Here we report on the

Quantum simulations with ultracold atoms in optical lattices

Quantum simulation, a subdiscipline of quantum computation, can provide valuable insight into difficult quantum problems in physics or chemistry. Ultracold atoms in optical lattices represent an

Hubbard Models for Bosons and Fermions

The concepts of the Hubbard model have largely shaped the way we think about atoms in optical lattices. Originally, the Hubbard model has been developed in theoretical condensed matter physics [1].

Simulating quantum-optical phenomena with cold atoms in optical lattices

We propose a scheme involving cold atoms trapped in optical lattices to observe different phenomena traditionally linked to quantum-optical systems. The basic idea consists of connecting the trapped

Bose-Hubbard Hamiltonian: Quantum Chaos approach

We discuss applications of the theory of Quantum Chaos to one of the paradigm models of many-body quantum physics -- the Bose-Hubbard model, which describes, in particular, interacting ultracold Bose

Many-Body Physics with Ultracold Gases

This paper reviews recent experimental and theoretical progress concerning many-body phenomena in dilute, ultracold gases. It focuses on effects beyond standard weak-coupling descriptions, such as

Fermi-Hubbard Physics with Atoms in an Optical Lattice

The Fermi-Hubbard model is a key concept in condensed matter physics and provides crucial insights into electronic and magnetic properties of materials. Yet, the intricate nature of Fermi systems

Quantum transport in ultracold atoms

Ultracold atoms confined by engineered magnetic or optical potentials are ideal to study phenomena otherwise difficult to realize or probe in the solid state, thanks to the ability to control the



Spin-dependent Hubbard model and a quantum phase transition in cold atoms

We describe an experimental protocol for introducing spin-dependent lattice structure in a cold atomic Fermi gas using lasers. It can be used to realize Hubbard models whose hopping parameters depend

Controlling spin exchange interactions of ultracold atoms in optical lattices.

It is illustrated how this technique can be used to efficiently "engineer" quantum spin systems with desired properties, for specific examples ranging from scalable quantum computation to probing a model with complex topological order that supports exotic anyonic excitations.

Cold Bosonic Atoms in Optical Lattices

The dynamics of an ultracold dilute gas of bosonic atoms in an optical lattice can be described by a Bose-Hubbard model where the system parameters are controlled by laser light. We study the

Defect-suppressed atomic crystals in an optical lattice.

We present a coherent filtering scheme which dramatically reduces the site occupation number defects for atoms in an optical lattice by transferring a chosen number of atoms to a different internal

High-temperature superfluidity of fermionic atoms in optical lattices.

An atomic physics experiment is described that can provide critical insight into the origin of high-temperature superconductivity in cuprates.

Quantum computations with atoms in optical lattices: marker qubits and molecular interactions

We develop a scheme for quantum computation with neutral atoms, based on the concept of ``marker'' atoms, i.e., auxiliary atoms that can be efficiently transported in state-independent periodic

Atomic Bose-Fermi mixtures in an optical lattice.

The phase diagram at low temperatures, and in the limit of strong atom-atom interactions, is discussed, and the existence of quantum phases that involve pairing of fermions with one or more bosons, or, respectively, bosonic holes are predicted.

Fast quantum gates for neutral atoms

We propose several schemes for implementing a fast two-qubit quantum gate for neutral atoms with the gate operation time much faster than the time scales associated with the external motion of the

Quantum computation with a one-dimensional optical lattice.

We present an economical dynamical control scheme to perform quantum computation on a one-dimensional optical lattice, where each atom encodes one qubit. The model is based on atom tunneling

Controlled collisions for multi-particle entanglement of optically trapped atoms

This work reports the creation of highly entangled states of neutral atoms trapped in the periodic potential of an optical lattice, and observes a coherent entangling–disentangling evolution in the many-body system, depending on the phase shift acquired during the collision between neighbouring atoms.
