Optimal quantum control of electron-phonon scatterings in artificial atoms

Ulrich Hohenester, Georg Stadler

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We study the phonon-induced dephasing dynamics in optically excited semiconductor quantum dots within the frameworks of the independent Boson model and optimal control. It is shown that appropriate tailoring of laser pulses allows a complete control of the optical excitation despite the phonon dephasing, a finding in marked contrast to other environment couplings.
