We analyse a quantum system consisting of a particle travelling in a model-environment made up of a net of localised two-level subsystems. We examine the dynamics of the entanglement through which the environment acquires information about the direction of propagation of the particle. Our study reproduces, within a nonperturbative investigation, an old result obtained by N. F. Mott in the early days of quantum mechanics.

Abstract

We analyse a quantum system consisting of a particle travelling in a model-environment made up of a net of localised two-level subsystems. We examine the dynamics of the entanglement through which the environment acquires information about the direction of propagation of the particle. Our study reproduces, within a nonperturbative investigation, an old result obtained by N. F. Mott in the early days of quantum mechanics.
