Abstract

It was shown that when the effective Rabi frequency was large compared to the transition frequency, a microwave transition ecited by an optically off-resonant Raman transition was immune to Bloch-Siegert Effect and Oscillation. This extra oscillation have a frequency that was twice of the driving field frequency, and a magnitude of the order of the ratio of the Rabi frequency to the driving field frequency. It was shown that this effect may limit the useful operating speed of a quantum computer, or rquire precise tracking of the absolute phase of driving fields at the locations of individual quantum bits.
