Peter Rabl, TU Vienna, Austria, Jan. 8, 2013 Part II
Peter Rabl, TU Vienna, Austria, lecture during ITAMP/B2 Institute Winter Graduate School on AMO Physics held at the B2 campus in Arizona January 4-11,2013. Hybrid systems in quantum optomechanics -- brief introduction on coupling nanomechanical to different types of qubits. I will then focus on the system of an NV center coupled magnetically as an example to discuss the basics of laser cooling, state preparation and the coupling of qubits via a phonon quantum bus. For the cooling I will present in more detail the general theory of laser cooling in the Lamb-Dicke regime and say a little bit about semiclassical laser cooling for this system. For coupling of spins I will discuss how to obtain effective Ising models by eliminating the phonon modes and make the connection to trapped ion quantum computing. If time permits, I will conclude with a few basics aspects of strong coupling OM.
