Nominated as an outstanding Ph.D. thesis by the The University of Queensland, AustraliaProvides a strong theoretical background to the generation, characterization and exploitation of quantum correlations and entanglement, with a particular focus on quantum-atom optics    Presents a comprehensive theoretical analysis of novel, experimentally realistic proposals to demonstrate non-classical phenomena such as the Hong-Ou-Mandel effect and violation of a Bell inequality with matter waves Offers a detailed introduction to phase-space methods and their use in simulating the non-equilibrium dynamics of large quantum many-body systems
Introduction.- Background I: Physical Systems.- Background II: Phase-space Methods.- Proposal for Demonstrating the Hong-Ou-Mandel E¿ect with Matter Waves.- Proposal for a Motional-state Bell Inequality Test with Ultracold Atoms.- Sensitivity to Thermal Noise of Atomic Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen Entanglement.- An Atomic SU(1,1) Interferometer Via Spin-changing Collisions.- On the Relation of the Particle Number Distribution of Stochastic Wigner Trajectories and Experimental Realizations.- Conclusion.
This thesis presents a theoretical investigation into the creation and exploitation of quantum correlations and entanglement among ultracold atoms. Specifically, it focuses on these non-classical effects in two contexts: (i) tests of local realism with massive particles, e.g., violations of a Bell inequality and the EPR paradox, and (ii) realization of quantum technology by exploitation of entanglement, for example quantum-enhanced metrology.
