    • Aspects of Quantum Field Theory with Boundary Conditions 

      Tjoa, Erickson (University of Waterloo, 2019-08-02)
      This thesis has two modest goals. The primary goal is to deliver three results involving particle detectors interacting with a quantum field in presence of non-trivial boundary conditions (Dirichlet, Neumann, periodic; ...
    • Entanglement Harvesting and Divergences in Unruh-DeWitt Detector Pairs 

      Sachs, Allison (University of Waterloo, 2017-08-28)
      We analyze correlations between pairs of detectors quadratically coupled to real and complex scalar bosonic fields in 3+1 dimensions. This is a first step toward studying the entanglement structure of the fermionic ...
    • Interpolated Collision Model Formalism 

      Grimmer, Daniel (University of Waterloo, 2020-09-16)
      The dynamics of open quantum systems (i.e., of quantum systems interacting with an uncontrolled environment) forms the basis of numerous active areas of research from quantum thermodynamics to quantum computing. One approach ...
    • Novel Heat-Bath Algorithmic Cooling methods 

      Rodríguez-Briones, Nayeli Azucena (University of Waterloo, 2020-08-20)
      The field of quantum information has inspired new methods for cooling physical systems at the quantum scale by manipulating entropy in an algorithmic way, such as heat-bath algorithmic cooling (HBAC). These methods not ...
