Quantum Trajectories in the Laboratory

Presented by:

Date: 
Friday 1st August 2014 - 14:00 to 15:00
Venue: 
INI Seminar Room 2
Abstract: 

I give a tutorial talk about applications of quantum trajectory theory, particularly in quantum optics. I briefly review the development of quantum input-ouput theory in quantum optics and the impact of experiments on trapped ions for thinking about quantum states conditioned on continuous measurement results. I conclude with some speculative comments about the range of applicability of quantum trajectory and input-output theory. This theory is usually derived using quite restrictive approximations but seems likely to be applicable to a wide range of physical systems.
