Michel Devoret, Catching and Reversing a Quantum Jump Mid-flight (4:00 PM - 5:00 PM)

-- Description: Quantum physics differs fundamentally from classical physics in that the measurement of a given quantity cannot always give certain results, even in the ideal case where both the preparation and the measurement of the system is perfect. This idea is epitomized in the phenomenon of quantum jumps, first hypothesized by Bohr in his description of the radiation emitted by an excited hydrogen atom, and now routinely observed in the laboratory on a single quantum entity. Quantum jumps are fundamentally random: the time at which they occur cannot be predicted. However, modern measurement theory allows that it is possible to obtain an advance warning signal that the jump is about to occur, and consequently, that it is possible to reverse it if it was initiated by a coherent drive. We have successfully caught and reversed a jump [1] by implementing the indirect QND measurement of a superconducting artificial atom that undergoes a transition from its ground state G to a dark state D. This is achieved by monitoring the occupancy of an auxiliary bright level B coupled to G through a Rabi drive. Our experimental results, in agreement with the predictions of quantum trajectories theory with essentially no adjustable parameters, provide new ground for the exploration of real-time intervention techniques in the control of quantum systems, such as early detection of error syndromes for computation and sensing. More generally, our results provide support to the point of view that a single system under continuous, efficient observation is characterized by a time-dependent wavefunction inferred from the record of previous measurement outcomes, and whose meaning is that of an objective, generalized degree of freedom.
