Coherent control of two-photon absorption via entangled photons — •Edoardo Carnio1, Frank Schlawin2, and Andreas Buchleitner1 — 1Physikalisches Institut, Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg, Germany — 2Clarendon Laboratory, University of Oxford, United Kingdom
Coherent control exploits the coherence of classical light to drive an initial quantum state to a desired final state. In two-photon absorption (TPA), in particular, two photons are used to excite a molecule from the ground to an excited state. Under certain conditions, frequency-entangled photons drive the transition more efficiently than in the classical case . We quantify the correlations in the state with the entropy of entanglement, which we compare to the enhancement of the transition. We perform this analysis in the two cases of finite and infinite interaction time.
