Demonstration of quantum contextuality via Hardy Paradox

Yolsever, Yankı
Quantum contextuality is one of the most fundamental foundations of Quantum Mechanics. In this thesis, we have examined the Hardy-type proof of quantum contextuality which is first developed by Lucien Hardy for quantum non-locality and later adapted to Quantum contextuality by Adan Cabello and his colleagues to 3-dimensional systems with a minimum of 5 observables. We have reformulated their method in terms of logical implications and adapted it to 4-dimensional and 5-dimensional systems with using fewer observables.


Definition of the Riesz derivative and its application to space fractional quantum mechanics
Bayin, Selcuk S. (2016-12-01)
We investigate and compare different representations of the Riesz derivative, which plays an important role in anomalous diffusion and space fractional quantum mechanics. In particular, we show that a certain representation of the Riesz derivative, Rax, that is generally given as also valid for alpha = 1, behaves no differently than the other definition given in terms of its Fourier transform. In the light of this, we discuss the alpha -> 1 limit of the space fractional quantum mechanics and its consistency...
Quantum Information Approach to Correlations in Many-body Systems
Aksak, Çağan; Turgut, Sadi; Department of Physics (2022-9-21)
Quantum correlations are crucial features in both quantum information theory and many-body physics. Characterization and quantification of quantum correlations have delivered a rich body of work and helped to understand some quantum phenomena. Entanglement is a unique quantum correlation for which it is a resource in many quantum information tasks. Developed for quantification of entanglement, entanglement witness formalism is a remarkable tool in the quantum information toolkit. It can be deployed beyond t...
Discrete symmetries in quantum theory
Taşdan, İsmail Ufuk; Pak, Namık Kemal; Department of Physics (2015)
In this thesis, one of the most central problems of modern physics, namely the discrete symmetries, is discussed from various perspectives ranging from classical mechanics to relativistic quantum theory. The discrete symmetries, namely charge conjugation (C), parity (P), time reversal (T), which are connected by the so-called CPT Theorem are studied in detail. The anti-particles with a view to matter-anti-matter symmetry is also addressed and the anti-unitarity nature of the time reversal, as well as the CP...
Leading to a Better Understanding of the Particle-in-a-Quantum-Corral Model
Agcali, Rahime Yagmur; Atik, Bahar; Bilgen, Ecenaz; Karli, Berfu; Danışman, Mehmet Fatih (2019-01-01)
Understanding the concepts of quantum mechanics has always been a challenge for undergraduate students. This is especially so because many of the introductory (analytically solvable) systems and problems discussed in textbooks are seemingly abstract. Using approximate experimental demonstrations of such systems and problems have been shown to be very helpful in teaching and illustrating the basic concepts of quantum mechanics. One such system is the particle-inside-a-ring system, whose experimental demonstr...
Comparison of multi-cavity arrays for on-chip WDM applications
Erdinç, Havva; Kocaman, Serdar; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2019)
Researches about the interaction of single atoms with electromagnetic field create the foundation of cavity quantum electrodynamics (CQED) technology. Microlasers, photon bandgap structures and quantum dot structures in cavities are the initial examples of Cavity Quantum Electrodynamics. This thesis is focused on the comparison of multi-cavity arrays for on-chip wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) applications in the weak coupling regime. Firstly, single QD embedded cavity (cavity QD EIT) and cavity-cavi...
