The engineering and control of devices at the quantum mechanical level—such as those consisting of small numbers of atoms and photons—is a delicate business. The fundamental uncertainty that is inherently present at this scale manifests itself in the unavoidable presence of noise, making this a novel field of application for stochastic estimation and control theory. In this expository paper we demonstrate estimation and feedback control of quantum mechanical systems in what is essentially a… Expand
Modeling and Control of Quantum Systems: An Introduction

An introduction to a selection of basic theoretical aspects in the modeling and control of quantum mechanical systems, as well as a brief survey on the main approaches to control synthesis are presented. Expand
Geometric control theory for quantum back-action evasion
TLDR
This paper provides a general method for designing an auxiliary (coherent feedback or direct interaction) controller for the sensor system to achieve the above-mentioned goal and demonstrates a controller design for a practical situation where several experimental imperfections are present. Expand
Feedback stabilization of discrete-time quantum systems subject to non-demolition measurements with imperfections and delays

Qubit models of weak continuous measurements: markovian conditional and open-system dynamics
TLDR
This paper shows how the continuous-time evolution of these master equations arises from discretizing in time the interaction between a system and a probe field and by formulating quantum-circuit diagrams for the discretized evolution. Expand
Optimal Nonlinear Filtering of Quantum State
The aim of this paper is to give an interpretation of the linear or nonlinear filtration problem as a quantization problem. Based on this, we extend the optimal filtering equation known from theExpand
