— Recently, it has been demonstrated experimentally that adaptive estimation of a continuously varying optical phase provides superior accuracy in the phase estimate compared to static estimation. Here, we show that the mean-square error in the adaptive phase estimate may be further reduced for the stochastic noise process considered by using an optimal(More)
— Adaptive homodyne estimation of a continuously evolving optical phase using time-symmetric quantum smoothing has been demonstrated experimentally to provide superior accuracy in the phase estimate compared to adaptive or non-adaptive estimation using filtering alone. Here, we illustrate how the mean-square error in the adaptive phase estimate may be(More)
— It is well-known that adaptive homodyne estimation of continuously varying optical phase provides superior accuracy in the phase estimate as compared to adaptive or non-adaptive static estimation. However, most phase estimation schemes rely on precise knowledge of the underlying parameters of the system under measurement, and performance deteriorates(More)
— We consider a coherent-classical estimation scheme for a class of linear quantum systems. It comprises an estimator that is a mixed quantum-classical system without involving coherent feedback. The estimator yields a classical estimate of a variable for the quantum plant. We demonstrate that for a passive plant that can be characterized by annihilation(More)
Graphical calculi provide an intuitive, compositional way to express and manipulate quantum states and processes. They also provide a bridge to automated techniques for reasoning and computation via graph rewriting. The power of these calculi stems from the fact that they subsume a wide range of symmetries in the structure of quantum operations such as the(More)
SUMMARY We consider classical estimators for a class of physically realizable linear quantum systems. Optimal estimation using a complex Kalman filter for this problem has been previously explored. Here, we study robust H∞ estimation for uncertain linear quantum systems. The estimation problem is solved by converting it to a suitably scaled H∞ control(More)
We consider a coherent-classical estimation scheme for a class of linear quantum systems, where the estimator is a mixed quantum-classical system that may or may not involve coherent feedback. We show that when the quantum plant or the quantum part of the estimator (coherent controller) is an annihilation operator only system, coherent-classical estimation(More)
— Precise tracking of a randomly varying optical phase is key to metrology, with applications in optical communication. Continuous phase estimation is known to be superior in accuracy as compared to static estimation. The underlying parameters in the model are, however, prone to changes owing to unavoidable external noises or apparatus imperfections. The(More)
