Abstract: In addition to being a very interesting quantum phenomenon, Schrödinger-cat-state swapping has the potential for application in the preparation of quantum states that could be used in metrology and other quantum processing. We study in detail the effects of field decoherence on a Schrödinger-cat-state-swapping system comprising a set of identical qubits, or spins, all coupled to a field mode. We demonstrate that increasing the number of spins actually mitigates the effects of field decoherence on the collapse and revival of a spin Schrödinger-cat state, which could be of significant utility in quantum metrology and other quantum processing.
