Josephson Junction Comparator as a Quantum-Limited Detector for Flux Qubit Readout


We have applied the Langevin-Heisenberg-Lax formalism for dissipative quantum systems to a balanced Josephson junction comparator operating as a fast, single-shot detector of state of a flux (rf-SQUID) qubit. Earlier experiments and theoretical analysis have shown that such a detector may reach quantum- limited resolution when it measures signal from a high… (More)
