I'm a researcher at the Institute for Complex Systems of the CNR in Florence.

Aree di interesse:

My research activity is devoted to the study of open quantum systems, with attention specifically focused on quantum low-dimensional magnetic systems. I'm interested in both the general theoretical aspects and the specific details requested by the comparison with experimental data. Besides magnetic observables, both at zero and finite temperature , in the last decade I have also studied entanglement properties of S=1/2 spin chains, which represent fundamental reference models for designing quantum devices, and their possible use as quantum channels. This is a selection of the topics I've recently considered: Entanglement properties of one and two-dimensional S=1/2 antiferromagnets in a uniform field: Concurrence and one-tangle via Quantum Monte Carlo simulations and exact analytical results. Long-ranged bipartite entanglement versus multipartite entanglement: Entanglement phase diagram. Excitation energy associated to single-qubit unitary operations: definition and characterization of the excitation energy which quantifies the ground-state entanglement. Effects of localized magnetic impurities on the Entanglement properties of a S=1/2 spin chain: enhancement and adiabatic control of concurrences near the impurity. Controlling quantum behaviour of qubits, manipulating and protecting entanglement by means of spin environments. Realization of nonperturbative Entangling Gates between Distant Qubits Using Uniform Cold Atom Chains. Quantum-state and entanglement transfer: Optimal dynamics and initialization strategies for high quality transfer through homogeneous quantum systems. Parametric representation of open quantum systems and crossover from a quantum to a classical environment. Decoherence induced by magnetic environments: strategies for long-lasting quantum coherence. Manipulating qubits by means of non linear excitations artificially generated in one-dimensional magnetic systems.
