Entanglement and Purcell Effects in Systems for Quantum Information and Sensing
Stephen K. Gray, Argonne National Laboratory
I discuss how to propagate the quantum mechanical density matrix, including dephasing, spontaneous emission and dissipation for systems relevant to quantum information and sensing. Two applications are then presented. In the first example, a plasmonic system is coupled to quantum dots. The plasmonic system could be a single metal nanoparticle or an array of metal nanoparticles and can be viewed as an optical resonator.
