Stimulated wave of polarization in spin chains Academic Article uri icon


  • Abstract Stimulated wave of polarization, triggered by a flip of a single spin, presents a simple model of quantum amplification. Previously, it has been found that such a wave can be excited in a one-dimensional Ising chain with nearest-neighbor interactions, irradiated by a weak resonant transverse field. Here we explore models with more realistic Hamiltonians, in particular, with natural dipole-dipole interactions. Results of simulations for one- dimensional spin chains and rings with up to nine spins are presented.
