Title: Global stability criterion for a quantum feedback control process on a single qubit and exponential stability in case of perfect detection efficiency

Abstract

Quantum feedback control is a technology that can be used to drive a quantum system into a predetermined eigenstate. In this article, sufficient conditions for the experiment parameters of a quantum feedback control process of a homodyne measurement are given to guarantee feedback control of a spin-1/2 quantum system in case of imperfect detection efficiency. For the case of pure states and perfect detection efficiency, time scales of feedback control processes are calculated.

  • Feedback control of instabilities in a continuum is a useful technique, but the analysis of such controlled systems is complicated by the coupling of the normal modes in the feedback loop. A simpler analysis is developed here which shows that mode coupling can be neglected if the feedback is not too large. This simpler method is applied to several examples, and comparisons with earlier more exact results show good agreement over the range of validity of the approximation. (AIP)
  • In this study, we briefly review single-qubit quantum process tomography for trace-preserving and nontrace-preserving processes, and derive explicit forms of the general constraints for fitting experimental data. These forms provide additional insight into the structure of the process matrix. We illustrate this with several examples, including a discussion of qubit leakage error models and the intuition which can be gained from their process matrices.
  • We perform feedback (FB) control for suppressing thermal fluctuation in the number of electrons in a silicon single-electron (SE) device composed of a small transistor and capacitor. SEs enter and leave the capacitor via the transistor randomly at thermal equilibrium, which is monitored in real time using a high-charge-sensitivity detector. In order to suppress such random motion or thermal fluctuation of the electrons, SEs are injected and removed using the transistor according to the monitored change in the number of electrons in the capacitor, which is exactly the FB control. As a result, thermal fluctuation in the number of electronsmore » in a SE device is suppressed by 60%, which corresponds to the so-called FB cooling from 300 to 110‚ÄČK. Moreover, a thermodynamics analysis of this FB cooling reveals that entropy in the capacitor is reduced and the device is at non-equilibrium; i.e., the free energy of the device increases. Since this entropy reduction originates from information about the electrons' motion monitored by the detector, our results by the FB control represent one type of information-to-energy conversion.« less
  • We discuss the implementation of an iterative quantum phase estimation algorithm with a single ancillary qubit. We suggest using this algorithm as a benchmark for multiqubit implementations. Furthermore, we describe in detail the smallest possible realization, using only two qubits, and exemplify with a superconducting circuit. We discuss the robustness of the algorithm in the presence of gate errors, and show that seven bits of precision is obtainable, even with very limited gate accuracies.
