However in many of the devices being developed for use in quantum photonics, particularly solid-state devices such as single photon sources, decoherence suffered by the participating electrons is a key limiting factor, reducing the interaction strength and randomizing the quantum state of the photons.
1) Rydberg atom dynamics: The study of complex open-system dynamics in gases of laser-driven Rydberg atoms, including the study of the effects and control of dissipation and decoherence from spontaneous emission in strongly interacting gases.
One of the greatest challenges in making a quantum computer viable is countering so-called quantum decoherence.

Applying the method to these arrays could give scientists precious time to do more with these arrays of atoms before entanglement is lost in a process known as decoherence.
Cold Mirror projects sorrow and cold comfort, Harnessing Wind asserts being done with cast iron alibis presents a forest of peppermint toys and asserts I'm ready now to believe, while Migration forwards assumed history revealing itself, Decoherence Through the Window leads to understanding that sometimes it's all about the window, Inanimate and meeting with the rocks in the frail hour of dusk gives way to Dark Matter Wants to be Alone which tells that relief comes in bursts of sunlight.
Moreover, we can plot a hierarchy of "measurements" starting with the observer-neutral decoherence that transforms the quantum into the classical world, to the reading of nucleotides that gives rise to codes in biology, to the nascent self that arises when conventional scientific observation of a QM system happens.
Some explanations of seasonal variation of decay rate were related to decoherence in gravitational field [36] and internal sun modes [42].

For these researchers, looking for ways to least delay decoherence - thereby preserving the state of superposition that makes quantum computers so much faster than their conventional counterparts - is a key goal.
From the quantum computing perspective, the error is mostly due to local decoherence or quantum noise.
His main research interests focus on the Physics of Information, Quantum Optics, Macroscopicity, Decoherence, and Experimental Quantum Information and Ultrafast Molecular Dynamics.
