We present an example of quantum process tomography (QPT) performed on a single solid state qubit. The qubit used is two energy levels of the triplet state in the Nitrogen-Vacancy defect in Diamond. Quantum process tomography is applied to a qubit which has been allowed to decohere for three different time periods. In each case the process is found in terms(More)
Lepidospartum burgessii is a rare gypsophilic shrub with limited distribution in New Mexico and Texas. Most of the known plants are restricted to two large populations, with a few small, isolated populations scattered in the surrounding area. The low recruitment observed in the two largest populations may be due to low seed set resulting from high(More)
Changes of spectra due to changes of variations in the physical features of the surface and view angle can impact the processing and exploitation of thermal IR hyperspectral images and need to be understood. To help accomplish this, FTIR spectrometer measurements were made on a set of known targets over a period of three days in order to assess the(More)
A continuous collection for diagnostic instrumental comparison was conducted at the Southern Great Plains (SGP) Lamont site from June 11 to the 13, 2003 using the Atmospheric Emitted Radiance Interferometer (AERI) at the site and the AERI owned by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), National Nuclear Security Administration and operated by Bechtel-Nevada(More)
