Optical Bloch equations for simulating trapped-ion qubits

Abstract:

This thesis describes work on numerical modelling of the 43Ca+ ion in a Paul trap using the optical Bloch equations. This is a challenging system to study, with many states involved in the internal dynamics. A major outcome is the development of a cooling scheme for the 146.09 gauss atomic clock transitions which makes use of a dark resonance. It is much more effective than methods that avoid coherent effects. The scheme is realised in experiment. Complicated fluoresc...
