In fact, the usual application of the time—energy uncertainty relation relates line widths of spectra for unstable systems with the corresponding halflife time. In quantum gravity, no time parameter appears on the fundamental level see Chapter 5.

A time—energy uncertainty relation can only be derived in the semiclassical limit.

They mainly concern the notions of vacuum and particles. This is not only of fundamental theoretical interest, but could also lead to observational consequences. It must be emphasized that the expression for TBH contains all fundamental constants of Nature.

After it has reached a mass of the size of the Planck mass 1.

Black-hole evaporation thus plays a crucial role in any approach to quantum gravity; cf. Chapter 7. Formally, it arises from 1.

This can be understood from the fact that horizons are present in both the blackhole case and the acceleration case; see, for example, Kiefer for a detailed review.

Although 1.

These equations are obtained by replacing the energy—momentum tensor in 1. As we shall discuss in the next section, 1. The more general question behind this issue concerns the possibility of a consistent hybrid dynamics through which a quantum and a classical system is being coupled. Eppley and Hannah argued that the coupling between a classical gravitational wave with a quantum system leads to inconsistencies.

In fact, the gravitational nature of this wave is not crucial—it can be any classical wave. Without going into details, their arguments seem to suggest that the quantum nature of the measuring apparatus has to be taken into account, in order to avoid inconsistencies.

It therefore has nothing to do with the WKB approximation, which is usually referred to as the semiclassical approximation. The latter is discussed in Section 5. It has, however, been criticized that the gedanken experiments presented by Eppley and Hannah cannot even be performed in principle, and even if they could, it does not necessarily follow that gravity must be quantized Mattingly It is often argued that the famous gedanken experiments by Bohr and Rosenfeld imply that a coupling between a classical and a quantum system is inconsistent.

Bohr and Rosenfeld then showed that this is not true. Their line of thought runs as follows. Momentum measurements of the body are being made at the beginning and the end of the measurement time interval.

In order to qualify the body as a measurement device, the following assumptions are made in order to avoid back reaction, etc. Therefore, E can be measured with arbitrary precision, contrary to the arguments of Landau and Peierls Bohr and Rosenfeld then showed that equations 1.

Their discussion, therefore, shows the consistency of the formalism with the measurement analysis. Rosenfeld Bronstein , DeWitt , and von Borzeszkowski and Treder On the other hand, a gedanken experiment by Smith and Bergmann shows that the magnetic-type components of the Weyl tensor in linearized quantum gravity can be measured, provided a suitable average over space—time domains is performed.

He writes in another paper the quotation is taken from Gorelik , The elimination of the logical inconsistencies connected with this requires a radical reconstruction of the theory, and in particular, the rejection of a Riemannian geometry dealing, as we see here, with values unobservable in principle, and perhaps also the rejection of our ordinary concepts of space and time, modifying them by some much deeper and nonevident concepts.

For a historical account of early work on the measurement analysis, see Gorelik and Stachel Does 1. Not necessarily, for the following reasons.

First, there might be other measurement devices which do not necessarily obey the above relations. Second, this analysis does not say anything about global situations black holes, cosmology and about non-trivial applications of the superposition principle. And third, in fact, quantum gravity seems to predict the existence of a smallest scale with operational meaning; see Chapters 6 and 9.


Then, relations such as 1. First, the expectation value of the energy—momentum tensor that occurs on the right-hand side is usually divergent and needs some regularization and renormalization. Birrell and Davies The ambiguities can then be absorbed by a redefinition of constants appearing in the action; cf. Section 2.

In this process, however, counter-terms arise that invoke higher powers of the curvature such as R2 , which may alter the semiclassical equations at a fundamental level. A possible consequence could be the instability of Minkowski space; see, for example, Ford and the references therein.

Second, 1.

The space— time metric g depends on the quantum state in a complicated way, since in 1. According to von Borzeszkowski and Treder it was also the reason why Dirac strongly objected to 1. Rosenfeld insisted on 1. This holds in particular for the structure of space—time, so he wished to have a c-number representation for the metric. The problem with the superposition principle can be demonstrated by the following argument that has even been put to an experimental test Page and Geilker This is of course the Everett interpretation of quantum theory; cf.

Chapter On the other hand, the semiclassical Einstein equations 1. In a box, there is a radioactive source together with two masses that are connected by a spring. Initially, the masses are rigidly connected, so that they cannot move.

Entangled Systems: New Directions in Quantum Physics

If a radioactive decay happens, the rigid connection will be broken and the masses can swing towards each other. Following Unruh , the situation can be described by the following simple model. We denote with 0 , the quantum state of the masses with rigid connection, and with 1 , the corresponding state in which they can move towards each other. If one makes the realistic assumption that the states are approximate eigenstates of the Hamiltonian, the last term, which describes interferences, vanishes.

This is, in fact, what has been observed in the actual experiment Page and Geilker This experiment, albeit simple, demonstrates that 1.

If one is unbiased with regard to the invoked interpretation, one can continue to search for experimental tests of 1. A fundamental non-linear equation such as 1. It has been remarked, for example, that the validity of the semiclassical Einstein equations or some non-linear theory of quantum gravity could be used to break the perfect security of protocols in quantum cryptography Plaga In fact, the experiment was devised to generate such a case.

T can appear, in contrast to linear quantum theory.

Image 5 Tabular Data. It is shown that the qubits in SB and SIB models have the same decoherence and relaxation as the baths with low frequencies. Well organized, highly instructive and readable. Professor Audretsch has published numerous articles in scientific journals and edited books. The decoherence and relaxation of the qubit in SIB model You are currently using the site but have requested a page in the site.

When we choose suitable parameters the qubits in the two models may have almost same decoherence and relaxation times.

A qubit may undergo Landau—Zener transitions due to its coupling to one or several quantum harmonic oscillators. Entangled Systems: New Directions in Quantum Physics Commented recommendations for further reading as well fileyype end-of-chapter problems help the reader to quickly access the theoretical basics of future key technologies. Starting in the ground state The net magnetic flux threading through the flux- qubit and the mechanical degrees of freedom of the cantilever are naturally coupled.

The Simplest Quantum Systems: Here, we suppose the oscillation frequencies of the Black bars denote Cooper pair boxes. Added to Your Shopping Cart. The Mathematical Framework 2. However, the qubits in the two models have different decoherence With such a setup, the measured pulse-induced probe currents are proportional to the probability for each qubit to have an extra Cooper pair after the manipulation.Therefore, E can be measured with arbitrary precision, contrary to the arguments of Landau and Peierls They are then recombined and sent to detectors.

The important feature is, however, entanglement between quantum systems.
