Quantum fluctuations of classical skyrmions in quantum Hall Ferromagnets
M. Abolfath
Physics , 1997, DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevB.58.2013
Abstract: In this article, we discuss the effect of the zero point quantum fluctuations to improve the results of the minimal field theory which has been applied to study %SMG the skyrmions in the quantum Hall systems. Our calculation which is based on the semiclassical treatment of the quantum fluctuations, shows that the one-loop quantum correction provides more accurate results for the minimal field theory.
Para-ortho transition of artificial H$_2$ molecule in lateral quantum dots doped with magnetic impurities
Ramin M. Abolfath
Physics , 2009, DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevB.80.165332
Abstract: We present the magnetic phase diagram of artificial H$_2$ molecule in lateral quantum dots doped with magnetic impurities as a function of external magnetic field and plunger gate voltage. The onset of Mn-Mn antiferromagnetic-ferromagnetic transition follows the electron spin singlet-triplet transition. We deploy a configuration-interaction method to exactly diagonalize the electron-Mn Hamiltonian and map it to an effective Mn-Mn Heisenberg Hamiltonian. We find that Mn-Mn exchange coupling can be described by RKKY-interaction/magnetic-polaron in weak/strong electron-Mn coupling at low/high magnetic fields.
Superfluid-spiral state of quantum ferrimagnets in magnetic field
M. Abolfath,A. Langari
Physics , 2001, DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevB.63.144414
Abstract: We study the phase diagram of one-dimensional quantum ferrimagnets by using a numerical exact diagonalization of a finite size system along with a field-theoretical non-linear $\sigma$ model of the quantum ferrimagnets at zero temperature and its effective description in the presence of the external magnetic field in terms of the quantum XY-model. The low- and the high-field phases correspond respectively to the classical N\'eel and the fully polarized ferromagnetic states where in the intermediate magnetic field ($h_{c1} < h < h_{c2}$), it is an XXZ+h model with easy plane anisotropy, which possess the spiral (superfluid) states that carry the dissipationless spin-supercurrent. We derive the critical exponents, and then will study the stability of the XY spiral state against these spin-supercurrents and the hard axis fluctuations. We will show a first order phase transition from the easy plane spiral state to a saturated ferromagnetic state occurs at $h=h_{c2}$ if the spin-supercurrent reaches to its critical value.
Optical control of DNA-base radio-sensitivity
Ramin M. Abolfath
Quantitative Biology , 2009,
Abstract: {\bf Purpose}: Manipulation of the radio-sensitivity of the nucleotide-base driven by the spin blockade mechanism of diffusive free radicals against ionizing radiation. {\bf Materials and methods}: We theoretically propose a mechanism which uses the simultaneous application of circularly polarized light and an external magnetic field to control the polarization of the free radicals and create S=1 electron-hole spin excitations (excitons) on nucleotide-base. We deploy an ab-initio molecular dynamics model to calculate the characteristic parameters of the light needed for optical transitions. {\bf Results}: As a specific example, we present the numerical results calculated for a Guanine, in the presence of an OH free radical. To increase the radio-resistivity of this system, a blue light source for the optical pumping and induction of excitons on guanine can be used. {\bf Conclusions}: The effect of spin-injection on the formation of a free energy barrier in diffusion controlled chemical reaction pathways leads to the control of radiation-induced base damage. The proposed method allows us to manipulate and partially suppress the damage induced by ionizing radiation.
Field Theory of Skyrme Lattices in Quantum Hall Ferromagnets
M. Abolfath,M. R. Ejtehadi
Physics , 1998, DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevB.58.10665
Abstract: We report the application of the nonlinear $\sigma$ model to study the multi-skyrmion problem in the quantum Hall ferromagnet system. We make use of a first-principle calculation to derive an analytical form for the inter-skyrmionic interaction to show that the ground state of the system can be described by a ferromagnet triangular Skyrme lattice near $\nu=1$ where skyrmions are extremely dilute and a continuous transition into antiferromagnet square lattice occurs by increasing the skyrmion density and therefore $|\nu-1|$. Using these results we demonstrate that the transition for a triangular to a square lattice which was previously derived, using the Hartree-Fock method, can also be seen in the field theory picture. We investigate the possibility that the skyrmions bound in pair to make a bi-skyrmion triangular lattice when the Zeeman energy is extremely small. We show that the energy of a skyrmion with charge $Q$ is less than the energy of $Q$ skyrmions each with charge one when the short range interaction among them is considered. By taking the quantum fluctuations into account, we also argue the possibility of the existence of a %SMG superconductor-insulator and the non-zero temperature phase transitions.
The field theory of Skyrme lattices in quantum Hall ferromagnets

Physics , 1997, DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevB.58.10665
Abstract: We report the application of the nonlinear $\sigma$ model to study the multi-skyrmion problem in the quantum Hall ferromagnet system. We show that the ground state of the system can be described by a ferromagnet triangular Skyrme lattice near $\nu=1$ where skyrmions are extremely dilute. We find a transition into antiferromagnet square lattice by increasing the skyrmion density and therefore $|\nu-1|$. We investigate the possibility that the square Skyrme lattice deforms to a single skyrmion with the same topological charge when the Zeeman energy is extremely smaller than the Coulomb energy. We explicitly show that the energy of a skyrmion with charge two is less than the energy of two skyrmions each with charge one when $g \leq g_c$. By taking the quantum fluctuations into account, we also argue the possibility of the existence of a non-zero temperature Kosterlitz-Thouless and a superconductor-insulator phase transition.
Protection Strategy of Sensitive Body Organs in Radiation Therapy
Ramin M. Abolfath,Lech Papiez
Physics , 2009,
Abstract: In this paper, we investigate protection strategies of sensitive body anatomy against the irradiation to the cancerous moving tumors in intensity modulated radiation therapy. Inspired by optimization techniques developed in statistical physics and dynamical systems, we deploy a method based on variational principles and formulate an efficient genetic algorithm which enable us to search for global minima in a complex landscape of irradiation dose delivered to the radiosensitive organs at risk. We take advantage of the internal motion of body anatomy during radiation therapy to reduce the unintentional delivery of the radiation to sensitive organs. We show that the accurate optimization of the control parameters, compare to the conventional IMRT and widely used delivery based on static anatomy assumption, leads to a significant reduction of the dose delivered to the organs at risk.
Spin transitions induced by a magnetic field in quantum dot molecules
Ramin M. Abolfath,Pawel Hawrylak
Physics , 2006, DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevB.77.165430
Abstract: We present a theoretical study of magnetic field driven spin transitions of electrons in coupled lateral quantum dot molecules. A detailed numerical study of spin phases of artificial molecules composed of two laterally coupled quantum dots with N=8 electrons is presented as a function of magnetic field, Zeeman energy, and the detuning using real space Hartree-Fock Configuration Interaction (HF-CI) technique. A microscopic picture of quantum Hall ferromagnetic phases corresponding to zero and full spin polarization at filling factors $\nu=2$ and $\nu=1$, and ferrimagnetic phases resulting from coupling of the two dots, is presented.
Performance engineering of semiconductor spin qubit systems
Ramin M. Abolfath,Thomas Brabec
Physics , 2010, DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevB.82.075311
Abstract: The performance of a quantum computation system is investigated, with qubits represented by magnetic impurities in coupled quantum dots filled with two electrons. Magnetic impurities are electrically manipulated by electrons. The dominant noise source is the electron mediated indirect coupling between magnetic impurities and host spin bath. As a result of the electron mediated coupling, both noise properties and the time needed for elementary gate operations, depend on controllable system parameters, such as size and geometry of the quantum dot, and external electric and magnetic fields. We find that the maximum number of quantum operations per coherence time for magnetic impurities increases as electron spin singlet triplet energy gap decreases. The advantage of magnetic impurities over electrons for weak coupling and large magnetic fields will be illustrated.
