A Kraus Operator in Fock basis

  1. Dec 28, 2016 #1
    The Kraus operator is defined as,

    is given in eqn(5) in the [Arxiv link](https://arxiv.org/pdf/quant-ph/0407263.pdf)

    the matrix representation of $A_k(t)$ is given in eqn (7) as



    $$A_{m,n}^{k}(t)={\sum_{\{k_i\}}^{k}}' \langle{m}|\langle{\{k_i\}}|U(t)|\{0\}\rangle|n\rangle$$ given in eqn(8)

    Using Wigner-Weisskopf approximation defined in eqn(9),
    $$b^{\dagger}(t)=u(t)b^{\dagger}(0)+\sum_{i=1}^{\infty}v_{i}(t){b_{i}}^{\dagger}(0)$$ It is said that $|U(t)|\{0\}\rangle|n\rangle$ can be written as $\frac{[b^{\dagger}(-t)]^n}{\sqrt{n!}}|\{0\}\rangle|0\rangle$, But I don't know how to proceed from here to get eqn (10), I tried to expand $b^{\dagger}(t)$ binomially and acted each term on $|\{0\}\rangle|0\rangle$ but it becomes clumsy. I don't know whether approach is correct or not? I need a hint to proceed with the problem.
