Experimental implementation of a nonthermalizing quantum thermometer

Experimental implementation of a nonthermalizing quantum thermometer Based on a quantum interferometric circuit, we implement a NMR quantum thermometer, in which a probe qubit measures the temperature of a nuclear spin at thermal equilibrium with a bath. The whole procedure lasts 5.5 ms, a much shorter time than the probe’s spin-lattice relaxation time, which is $$T_{1}=7.0\,\hbox {s}$$ T 1 = 7.0 s . The fidelity of the probe final quantum state, in respect to the ideal theoretical prediction, is above 99 %. We show that quantum coherence is essential for the high fidelity of temperature measurement. We discuss the source of errors on the temperature measurement and some possible applications of the thermometer. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Quantum Information Processing Springer Journals
