On certain generalized Hardy's inequalities and applications
In Fig. 3 we see that at the end of the laser pulse the state has become almost maximally entangled and, in the absence of decay, stays so once the laser is switched off (the small deviation from unity is due to the residual effect of the F¨orster coupling when the laser is off ).
Creating excitonic entanglement in quantum dots through the optical Stark effect
This will prevent the machine from “falling off ” the left or r ight end of a list. I.e., if the head is standing on the rightmost (resp., leftmost) list cell, it will stay there instead of moving a further step to the right (resp., to the left).
