Self-calibrating tomography for non-unitary processes

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


We extend the idea of using a incompletely characterized process to do quantum state tomography by including the possibility that the process itself is not unitary. We study a to level atom whose dipole moment is unknown and that undergoes spontaneous emission and is irradiated by a laser whose phase and intensity can be controlled at will. We show that by using five different parameter settings of the electric field of the laser it is possible two reconstruct the state, and obtain the unknown spontaneous emission rate and dipole moment of the atom.
