Quantum decoherence of Dirac fields in non-inertial frames beyond the single-mode approximation

Quantum decoherence of Dirac fields in non-inertial frames beyond the single-mode approximation The effects of Quantum decoherence on Dirac fields in an accelerated frame are studied beyond the single-mode approximation. The decoherence phenomena are investigated through the quantum channel approach using the amplitude damping channel and the dephasing one. The entanglement and purity are two distinct quantum features which are investigated. We have assumed that only the non-inertial observer experiences decoherence phenomena.

Abstract

The effects of Quantum decoherence on Dirac fields in an accelerated frame are studied beyond the single-mode approximation. The decoherence phenomena are investigated through the quantum channel approach using the amplitude damping channel and the dephasing one. The entanglement and purity are two distinct quantum features which are investigated. We have assumed that only the non-inertial observer experiences decoherence phenomena. The associated effects of the acceleration, damping rate, and dephasing rate are considered. It is found that acceleration and decoherence rates will decrease the degree of entanglement and purity. It turns out that beyond the single-mode approximation, the maximal entangled state cannot be achieved. Moreover, a comparison between the damping and dephasing processes is done which reveals the fact that damping effects on the entanglement are stronger than dephasing effects, whereas dephasing has stronger effects on the purity.
