Paper Abstract

Forbidden transitions often have moderate energy separations and long lifetimes. They can be induced in elements by external force including laser absorption, magnetic effect, crystal forces and collision with energetic particles. In this paper we discuss the prospects of quantum information processing involving forbidden transitions in the inner shell of Ytterbium. We derive the Schrodinger wave equation for the qubit states with the 3P and 1S as basis states. We also determine a coherent norm calculate the decoherence rate for trapped atoms.
