Quantum control using sequences of simple control pulses
Abstract
Structured decompositions of a desired unitary operator are employed to derive control schemes that achieve certain control objectives for finitelevel quantum systems using only sequences of simple control pulses such as square waves with finite rise and decay times or Gaussian wavepackets. The technique is applied to find control schemes that achieve population transfers for purestate systems, complete inversions of the ensemble populations for mixedstate systems, create arbitrary superposition states and optimize the ensemble average of observables.
