Exact dynamics in the inhomogeneous central-spin model

Bortz, Michael; Stolze, Joachim


We study the dynamics of a single spin 12 coupled to a bath of spins 12 by inhomogeneous Heisenberg couplings including a central magnetic field. This central-spin model describes decoherence in quantum bit systems. An exact formula for the dynamics of the central spin is presented, based on the Bethe ansatz. For initially completely polarized bath spins and small magnetic field, we find persistent oscillations of the central spin about a nonzero mean value. For a large number of bath spins Nb,...[Show more]
