Suppressing nonadiabatic transitions during adiabatic generation of highly entangled states in bosonic Josephson junctions
Physical Review A
We study suppression of nonadiabatic transitions during adiabatic generation of a cat-like state (a superposition of different size cat states) and a spin squeezed state in a bosonic Josephson junction. In order to minimize the adiabatic error, we use quantum adiabatic brachistochrone, which enables us to track a geometrically efficient path in parameter space under given conditions without requiring additional terms. For creation of a cat-like state, divergence of the quantum geometric tensor
... ssociated with gap closing at the critical point is avoided because of the parity conservation. The resulting schedules of parameters are smooth and monotonically decreasing curves. Use of these schedules offers reduction of time to generate both of a cat-like state and a spin squeezed state.
