Optical Quantum Control Research Team Team Leader


Our team is investigating high-performance measurement and estimation techniques, quantum control techniques, and related quantum optical technology. In quantum systems, quantum states suffer from external disturbances or measurements. Thus, the control technology of quantum systems is of paramount importance. For controlling quantum systems, high-quality quantum estimation is a prerequisite, followed by the realisation of coherent control and measurement-based control. Coherent control is a control technique that excludes quantum measurements, resulting in simpler and wider bandwidth systems. Measurement-based control, on the other hand, is a control technique based on measurements, which utilises the effects of measurements and enables more complex processing compared to coherent control. Through these investigations, our team aims to realise and improve optical quantum computers and related quantum information technologies.
