Generation of entanglement in finite spin systems via adiabatic quantum computation

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


For a finite XY chain and a finite two-dimensional Ising lattice, it is shown that the paramagnetic ground state is adiabatically transformed to the Greenberger-Horne-Zeilinger state in the ferromagnetic phase by changing slowly the external magnetic field. It is found that the fidelity between the Greenberger- Horne-Zeilinger state and an adiabatically evolved state depends on the interpolation schemes as well as the energy gap between the ground and exited states. A possibility whether quantum phase transitions can be simulated on adiabatic quantum computation is discussed.
