The Effect of Temperature and Electric Field on a Quantum Pseudodot Qubit



The electron’s probability density (EPD) and the oscillating period (OP) of an electron confined by a three-dimensional RbCl quantum pseudodot (QPD) are studied. Calculations are performed by employing variational method of Pekar type (VMPT) and the quantum statistics theory (QST).The influences of the temperature and electric field on the EPD and the OP of the RbCl QPD qubit have been derived in detail. According to the obtained results, it is observed that the EPD and the OP increase (decrease) with raising temperature at lower (higher) temperature region. They are decaying functions of the electric field.
