Generation and Storage of Massively Entangled States in a Spin-1 BEC

Quantum entangled and squeezed spin states are useful for quantum computing, quantum information processing, and quantum precision measurement. However, these delicate quantum states are very fragile to the uncontrolled environmental or laboratory noises. Thus, the generation and the storage of these quantum states in a noisy environment become a main obstacle to prevent them from pactical applications.
Dynamical decoupling (DD) is an active and effective method for suppressing decoherence of a quantum system from its environment. In this talk, we will discuss the generation of several entangled quantum states, such as optimal spin squeezed states, the many-body singlet states and the twin-Fock states, in a spin-1 BEC with the presence of practical laboratory noises. In order to suppress the noise effect during the production of these entangled states, we employ the well-known biaxial dynamical decoupling protocol developed long ago by NMR scientists, as well as new Uniaxial DD (Uni-DD) protocol proposed recently by us. The storage of the squeezed spin states will also be considered.
