Abstract

We propose a digital approach to quantum memories using a single-mode oscillator-cavity model, in which the coupling is shaped in time to provide the optimum interface to a time-symmetric input pulse. Our generic model is applicable to any linear storage medium ranging from a superconducting device to an atomic medium.

Proposed dynamical atom-cavity QM. The cavity couples to only one ingoing and outgoing mode, u in(out) 0 (t), and it is the quantum state of this mode that is stored. The pulse shape is optimized for efficient writing and reading of the state onto and from the oscillator medium inside the cavity. A symmetric pulse shape is used, so the time-reversed output is identical to the input.

(a) Case 1: Cavity input (dashed) and output (solid) amplitudes. The dotted line gives the oscillator amplitude. (b) Case 2: The inset gives the detuning shapes in time: Δ(t) and δ(t). Here t 0=-5, T=15, a 0=1.
