PublicationsBachelor thesis & preliminaries of master thesis

Since I am currently finishing up a masters degree, I don't yet have a catalogue of publications to show you. But you are welcome to read my bachelor thesis, "Quantum interference and interaction free measurement in a diatomic molecule", and some preliminaries for my master thesis.

Bachelor thesis

This thesis utilizes the split operator method, and a quantum mechanical numerical model, to study a phenomenon where a supposedly unstable molecule becomes more stable – or meta-stable – through matter wave interference. The model of the molecule and the split operator method are both discussed in detail, and then used in numerical calculations to arrive at results in two separate investigations.

The first is a successful replication of an earlier paper where the meta-stable behaviour is optimized for and found. The second investigation models an interaction-free measurement of the electronic state of the molecule by incorporating a quantized electromagnetic field. Entanglement between field and molecule is calculated to confirm the assumption that increasing entanglement means a larger risk for dissociating the meta-stable molecule. The assumption is shown to be consistent with the results from the numerical model.
