# Continuous quantum measurement of a double dot

@article{Korotkov1999ContinuousQM, title={Continuous quantum measurement of a double dot}, author={Alexander N. Korotkov}, journal={Physical Review B}, year={1999}, volume={60}, pages={5737-5742} }

We consider the continuous measurement of a double quantum dot by a weakly coupled detector ~tunnel point contact nearby!. While the conventional approach describes the gradual system decoherence due to the measurement, we study the situation when the detector output is explicitly recorded that leads to the opposite effect: gradual purification of the double-dot density matrix. The nonlinear Langevin equation is derived for the random evolution of the density matrix which is reflected and…

The possibility of reading out the state of the qubit system in a single-shot experiment is discussed and the master equation of "partially" reduced density matrix can be derived from the quantum trajectory equation (stochastic master equation) by simply taking a "partial" average over the all possible outcomes of the measurement.
