# Prescription for experimental determination of the dynamics of a quantum black box

@article{Chuang1997PrescriptionFE, title={Prescription for experimental determination of the dynamics of a quantum black box}, author={Isaac L. Chuang and Michael A. Nielsen}, journal={Journal of Modern Optics}, year={1997}, volume={44}, pages={2455-2467} }

Abstract We give an explicit way to experimentally determine the evolution operators which completely describe the dynamics of a quantum-mechanical black box: an arbitrary open quantum system. We show necessary and sufficient conditions for this to be possible and illustrate the general theory by considering specifically one-and two-quantum-bit systems. These procedures may be useful in the comparative evaluation of experimental quantum measurement, communication and computation systems.
