Quantum Discord of a Two-Qubit Anisotropy XXZ Heisenberg Chain with Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya Interaction
Abstract: We investigate the quantum discord of a two-qubit anisotropy XXZ Heisenberg chain with Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya (DM) interaction under magnetic field. It is shown that the quantum discord highly depends on the system’s temperature T, DM interaction D, homogenous magnetic field B and the anisotropy Δ. For lower temperature T, by modulating D and B, the quantum discord can be controlled and the quantum discord switch can be realized.
