Pair-state basis calculations

Preliminaries

atom orientation

Relative orientation of the two atoms can be described with polar angle \(\theta\) (range \(0-\pi\)) and azimuthal angle \(\phi\) (range \(0-2\pi\)). The \(\hat{z}\) axis is here specified relative to the laser driving. For circularly polarized laser light, this is the direction of laser beam propagation. For linearly polarized light, this is the plane of the electric field polarization, perpendicular to the laser direction.

Internal coupling between the two atoms in \(|n,l,j,m_1\rangle\) and \(|nn,ll,jj,m_2\rangle\) is calculated easily for the two atoms positioned so that \(\theta = 0\), and for other angles wignerD matrices are used to change a basis and perform calculation in the basis where couplings are more clearly seen.

Examples

Advanced interfacing of pair-state interactions calculations (PairStateInteractions class). This is an advanced example intended for building up extensions to the existing code. If you want to directly access the pair-state interaction matrix, constructed by defineBasis, you can assemble it easily from diagonal part (stored in matDiagonal ) and off-diagonal matrices whose spatial dependence is \(R^{-3},R^{-4},R^{-5}\) stored in that order in matR. Basis states are stored in basisStates array.

>>> from arc import *
>>> calc = PairStateInteractions(Rubidium(), 60,0,0.5, 60,0,0.5, 0.5,0.5,interactionsUpTo = 1)
>>> # theta=0, phi = 0, range of pqn, range of l, deltaE = 25e9
>>> calc.defineBasis(0 ,0 , 5, 5, 25e9, progressOutput=True)
>>> # now calc stores interaction matrix and relevant basis
>>> # we can access this directly and generate interaction matrix
>>> # at distance rval :
>>> rval = 4  # in mum
>>> matrix = calc.matDiagonal
>>> rX = (rval*1.e-6)**3
>>> for matRX in self.matR:

defineBasis(theta, phi, nRange, lrange, energyDelta, Bz=0, progressOutput=False, debugOutput=False)[source]

Finds relevant states in the vicinity of the given pair-state

Finds relevant pair-state basis and calculates interaction matrix. Pair-state basis is saved in basisStates. Interaction matrix is saved in parts depending on the scaling with distance. Diagonal elements matDiagonal, correponding to relative energy defects of the pair-states, don’t change with interatomic separation. Off diagonal elements can depend on distance as \(R^{-3}, R^{-4}\) or \(R^{-5}\), corresponding to dipole-dipole (\(C_3\) ), dipole-qudrupole (\(C_4\) ) and quadrupole-quadrupole coupling (\(C_5\) ) respectively. These parts of the matrix are stored in matR in that order. I.e. matR[0] stores dipole-dipole coupling (\(\propto R^{-3}\)), matR[0] stores dipole-quadrupole couplings etc.

Parameters:
  • theta (float) – relative orientation of the two atoms (see figure on top of the page), range 0 to \(\pi\)
  • phi (float) – relative orientation of the two atoms (see figure on top of the page), range 0 to \(2\pi\)
  • nRange (int) – how much below and above the given principal quantum number of the pair state we should be looking?
  • lrange (int) – what is the maximum angular orbital momentum state that we are including in calculation
  • energyDelta (float) – what is maximum energy difference ( \(\Delta E/h\) in Hz) between the original pair state and the other pair states that we are including in calculation
  • Bz (float) – optional, magnetic field directed along z-axis in units of Tesla. Calculation will be correct only for weak magnetic fields, where paramagnetic term is much stronger then diamagnetic term. Diamagnetic term is neglected.
  • progressOutput (bool) – optional, False by default. If true, prints information about the progress of the calculation.
  • debugOutput (bool) – optional, False by default. If true, similar to progressOutput=True, this will print information about the progress of calculations, but with more verbose output.

diagonalise(rangeR, noOfEigenvectors, drivingFromState=[0, 0, 0, 0, 0], eigenstateDetuning=0.0, sortEigenvectors=False, progressOutput=False, debugOutput=False)[source]

Finds eigenstates in atom pair basis.

ARPACK ( scipy.sparse.linalg.eigsh) calculation of the noOfEigenvectors eigenvectors closest to the original state. If drivingFromState is specified as [n,l,j,mj,q] coupling between the pair-states and the situation where one of the atoms in the pair state basis is in \(|n,l,j,m_j\rangle\) state due to driving with a laser field that drives \(q\) transition (+1,0,-1 for \(\sigma^-\), \(\pi\) and \(\sigma^+\) transitions respectively) is calculated and marked by the colourmaping these values on the obtained eigenvectors.

Parameters:
  • rangeR (array) – Array of values for distance between the atoms (in \(\mu\) m) for which we want to calculate eigenstates.
  • noOfEigenvectors (int) – number of eigen vectors closest to the energy of the original (unperturbed) pair state. Has to be smaller then the total number of states.
  • eigenstateDetuning (float, optional) – Default is 0. This specifies detuning from the initial pair-state (in Hz) around which we want to find noOfEigenvectors eigenvectors. This is useful when looking only for couple of off-resonant features.
  • drivingFromState ([int,int,float,float,int]) – Optional. State of the one of the atoms from the original pair-state basis from which we try to dribe to the excited pair-basis manifold. By default, program will calculate just contribution of the original pair-state in the eigenstates obtained by diagonalization, and will highlight it’s admixure by colour mapping the obtained eigenstates plot.
  • sortEigenvectors (bool) – optional, False by default. Tries to sort eigenvectors so that given eigen vector index corresponds to adiabatically changing eigenstate, as detirmined by maximising overlap between old and new eigenvectors.
  • progressOutput (bool) – optional, False by default. If true, prints information about the progress of the calculation.
  • debugOutput (bool) – optional, False by default. If true, similar to progressOutput=True, this will print information about the progress of calculations, but with more verbose output.
exportData(fileBase, exportFormat='csv')[source]

Exports PairStateInteractions calculation data.

Only supported format (selected by default) is .csv in a human-readable form with a header that saves details of calculation. Function saves three files: 1) filebase _r.csv; 2) filebase _energyLevels 3) filebase _highlight

For more details on the format, see header of the saved files.

Parameters:
  • filebase (string) – filebase for the names of the saved files without format extension. Add as a prefix a directory path if necessary (e.g. saving outside the current working directory)
  • exportFormat (string) – optional. Format of the exported file. Currently only .csv is supported but this can be extended in the future.
getC3fromLevelDiagram(rStart, rStop, showPlot=False, minStateContribution=0.0, resonantBranch=1)[source]

Finds \(C_3\) coefficient for original pair state.

Function first finds for each distance in the range [rStart , rStop] the eigen state with highest contribution of the original state. One can set optional parameter minStateContribution to value in the range [0,1), so that function finds only states if they have contribution of the original state that is bigger then minStateContribution.

Once original pair-state is found in the range of interatomic distances, from smallest rStart to the biggest rStop, function will try to perform fitting of the corresponding state energy \(E(R)\) at distance \(R\) to the function \(A+C_3/R^3\) where \(A\) is some offset.

Parameters:
  • rStart (float) – smallest inter-atomic distance to be used for fitting
  • rStop (float) – maximum inter-atomic distance to be used for fitting
  • showPlot (bool) – If set to true, it will print the plot showing fitted energy level and the obtained best fit. Default is False
  • minStateContribution (float) – valid values are in the range [0,1). It specifies minimum amount of the original state in the given energy state necessary for the state to be considered for the adiabatic continuation of the original unperturbed pair state.
  • resonantBranch (int) – optional, default +1. For resonant interactions we have two branches with identical state contributions. In this case, we will select only positively detuned branch (for resonantBranch = +1) or negatively detuned branch (fore resonantBranch = -1) depending on the value of resonantBranch optional parameter
Returns:

\(C_3\) measured in \(\text{GHz }\mu\text{m}^6\) on success; If unsuccessful returns False.

Return type:

float

Note

In order to use this functions, highlighting in diagonalise should be based on the original pair state contribution of the eigenvectors (that this, drivingFromState parameter should not be set, which corresponds to drivingFromState = [0,0,0,0,0]).

getC6fromLevelDiagram(rStart, rStop, showPlot=False, minStateContribution=0.0)[source]

Finds \(C_6\) coefficient for original pair state.

Function first finds for each distance in the range [ rStart , rStop ] the eigen state with highest contribution of the original state. One can set optional parameter minStateContribution to value in the range [0,1), so that function finds only states if they have contribution of the original state that is bigger then minStateContribution.

Once original pair-state is found in the range of interatomic distances, from smallest rStart to the biggest rStop, function will try to perform fitting of the corresponding state energy \(E(R)\) at distance \(R\) to the function \(A+C_6/R^6\) where \(A\) is some offset.

Parameters:
  • rStart (float) – smallest inter-atomic distance to be used for fitting
  • rStop (float) – maximum inter-atomic distance to be used for fitting
  • showPlot (bool) – If set to true, it will print the plot showing fitted energy level and the obtained best fit. Default is False
  • minStateContribution (float) – valid values are in the range [0,1). It specifies minimum amount of the original state in the given energy state necessary for the state to be considered for the adiabatic continuation of the original unperturbed pair state.
Returns:

\(C_6\) measured in \(\text{GHz }\mu\text{m}^6\) on success; If unsuccessful returns False.

Return type:

float

Note

In order to use this functions, highlighting in diagonalise should be based on the original pair state contribution of the eigenvectors (that this, drivingFromState parameter should not be set, which corresponds to drivingFromState = [0,0,0,0,0]).

getC6perturbatively(theta, phi, nRange, energyDelta)[source]

Calculates \(C_6\) from second order perturbation theory.

Calculates \(C_6=\sum_{\rm r',r''}|\langle {\rm r',r''}|V| {\rm r1,r2}\rangle|^2/\Delta_{\rm r',r''}\), where \(\Delta_{\rm r',r''}\equiv E({\rm r',r''})-E({\rm r1, r2})\)

This calculation is faster then full diagonalization, but it is valid only far from the so called spaghetti region that occurs when atoms are close to each other. In that region multiple levels are strongly coupled, and one needs to use full diagonalization. In region where perturbative calculation is correct, energy level shift can be obtained as \(V(R)=-C_6/R^6\)

See perturbative C6 calculations example snippet.

Parameters:
  • theta (float) – orientation of inter-atomic axis with respect to quantization axis (\(z\)) in Euler coordinates (measured in units of radian)
  • phi (float) – orientation of inter-atomic axis with respect to quantization axis (\(z\)) in Euler coordinates (measured in units of radian)
  • nRange (int) – how much below and above the given principal quantum number of the pair state we should be looking
  • energyDelta (float) – what is maximum energy difference ( \(\Delta E/h\) in Hz) between the original pair state and the other pair states that we are including in calculation
Returns:

\(C_6\) measured in \(\text{GHz }\mu\text{m}^6\)

Return type:

float

Example

If we want to quickly calculate \(C_6\) for two Rubidium atoms in state \(62 D_{3/2} m_j=3/2\), positioned in space along the shared quantization axis:

from arc import *
calculation = PairStateInteractions(Rubidium(), 62, 2, 1.5, 62, 2, 1.5, 1.5, 1.5)
c6 = calculation.getC6perturbatively(0,0, 5, 25e9)
print "C_6 = %.0f GHz (mu m)^6" % c6

Which returns:

C_6 = 767 GHz (mu m)^6

Quick calculation of angular anisotropy of for Rubidium \(D_{2/5},m_j=5/2\) states:

# Rb 60 D_{2/5}, mj=2.5 , 60 D_{2/5}, mj=2.5 pair state
calculation1 = PairStateInteractions(Rubidium(), 60, 2, 2.5, 60, 2, 2.5, 2.5, 2.5)
# list of atom orientations
thetaList = np.linspace(0,pi,30)
# do calculation of C6 pertubatively for all atom orientations
c6 = []
for theta in thetaList:
    value = calculation1.getC6perturbatively(theta,0,5,25e9)
    c6.append(value)
    print ("theta = %.2f * pi       C6 = %.2f GHz  mum^6" % (theta/pi,value))
# plot results

getLeRoyRadius()[source]

Le Roy radius [2] is defined as \(2(\langle r_1^2 \rangle^{1/2} + \langle r_2^2 \rangle^{1/2})\), where \(r_1\) and \(r_2\) are electron coordinates for the first and the second atom in the initial pair-state. Below this radius, calculations are not valid since electron wavefunctions start to overlap.
