We investigate the advantages of using two independent, linear detectors for continuous quantum measurement. For single-shot quantum measurement, the measurement is maximally efficient if the detectors are twins. For weak continuous measurement, cross-correlations allow a violation of the Korotkov-Averin bound for the detector's signal-to-noise ratio. A vanishing noise background provides a nontrivial test of ideal independent quantum detectors. We further investigate the correlations of non-commuting operators, and consider possible deviations from the independent detector model for mesoscopic conductors coupled by the screened Coulomb interaction.

We develop a theory of coherent quantum **oscillations** in two, in general interacting, **qubits** measured continuously by a mesoscopic detector with arbitrary non-linearity and discuss an example of SQUID magnetometer that can operate as such a detector. Calculated spectra of the detector output show that the detector non-linearity should lead to mixing of the **oscillations** of the two **qubits**. For non-interacting **qubits** **oscillating** with **frequencies** $\Omega_1$ and $\Omega_2$, the mixing manifests itself as spectral peaks at the combination **frequencies** $\Omega_1\pm \Omega_2$. Additional nonlinearity introduced by the **qubit**-**qubit** interaction shifts all the **frequencies**. In particular, for identical **qubits**, the interaction splits coherent superposition of the single-**qubit** peaks at $\Omega_1=\Omega_2$. Quantum mechanics of the measurement imposes limitations on the height of the spectral peaks.

**oscillator**system under the conditions of various system parameters. For the energy-level spectrum, we concentrate on studying the degeneracy in low energy levels. For the ground state, we focus on its nonclassical properties that are necessary for preparing the nonclassical states. We show that the minimum

**qubit**-

**oscillator**coupling strength needed for generating the nonclassical states of the Schr\"{o}dinger-cat type in the

**oscillator**is just one half of that in the Rabi model. We find that the

**qubit**-

**qubit**entanglement in the ground state vanishes if the

**qubit**-

**oscillator**coupling strength is strong enough, for which the entropy of three

**qubits**keeps larger than one. We also observe the phase-transition-like behavior in the regime where the

**qubit**'s

For a superconducting **qubit** driven to perform Rabi **oscillations** and coupled to a slow electromagnetic or nano-mechanical **oscillator** we describe previously unexplored quantum optics effects. When the Rabi **frequency** is tuned to resonance with the **oscillator** the latter can be driven far from equilibrium. Blue detuned driving leads to a population inversion in the **qubit** and a bi-stability with lasing behavior of the **oscillator**; for red detuning the **qubit** cools the **oscillator**. This behavior persists at the symmetry point where the **qubit**-**oscillator** coupling is quadratic and decoherence effects are minimized. There the system realizes a "single-atom-two-photon laser".

The coupling between the SQUID phase **qubit** and its environment is modeled via the Caldeira-Leggett formulation of quantum dissipation/coherence, where the spectral density of the environment is related to the admittance of the isolation circuit. When the **frequency** of the **qubit** is at least two times larger than the resonance **frequency** of the isolation circuit, we find that the decoherence time of the **qubit** is two orders of magnitude larger than the typical ohmic regime, where the **frequency** of the **qubit** is much smaller than the resonance **frequency** of the isolation circuit. Lastly, we show that when the **qubit** **frequency** is on resonance with the isolation circuit, an oscillatory non-Markovian decay emerges, as the dc SQUID phase **qubit** and its environment self-generate Rabi **oscillations** of characteristic time scales shorter than the decoherence time.

We consider the phase-transition-like behaviour in the Rabi model containing a single two-level system, or **qubit**, and a single harmonic **oscillator**. The system experiences a sudden transition from an uncorrelated state to an increasingly correlated one as the **qubit**-**oscillator** coupling strength is varied and increased past a critical point. This singular behaviour occurs in the limit where the **oscillator**'s **frequency** is much lower than the **qubit**'s **frequency**; away from this limit one obtains a finite-width transition region. By analyzing the energy-level structure, the value of the **oscillator** field and its squeezing and the **qubit**-**oscillator** correlation, we gain insight into the nature of the transition and the associated critical behaviour.
