Weak coherent driving + weak noise give a strong coherent response.

Noise

Stochastic resonance


Biological systems can use noise to improve response. their sensitivity to weak coherent signals

Can we use this in quantum mechanics ?

Noise can be good for you in quantum mechanics too for entanglement generation and preservation !

  • Each process open additional pathways for propagation

The Fundamental Mechanisms response.

  • Dephasing can reduce destructive interference

  • Energy mismatch can reduce destructive interference

  • Dephasing noise increases overlap of energy levels

  • Each process open additional pathways for propagation

Caruso, Chin, Datta, Huelga, Plenio, arxiv:0901.4454 [quant-ph]


Can we improve solar cells response.based on this idea ?

More generally: Adding the right kind of noise, to the right kind of nano-structure can improve its performance.

Engineer system to generate constructive interplay between quantum dynamics and noise


This talk was based on response.
