(Color online) NV−1 Rabi oscillations. Control **qubit** down: blue, red and green lines correspond, respectively, to the time evolution of |A|2, |B|2 and |C|2, i.e., the probabilities of finding the spin system in the state |⇓↓〉, |⇑↓〉 and |0↓〉. Control **qubit** up: red, blue and green lines represent, respectively, |A′|2, |B′|2 and |C′|2, i.e., the probabilities of finding the spin system in the state |⇓↑〉, |⇑↑〉 and |0↑〉, i.e., |A′|2=|B|2, |B′|2=|A|2 and |C′|2=|C|2 (see text). Fig. 4 gives details in the interval 60–120ns. They can also be revealed by a zoom in.
...Quantum computing requires a set of universal quantum gates. The standard set includes single quantum bit (**qubit**) gates and the controlled-NOT (CNOT) which is the analog of the classical XOR gate. It flips the state of the target **qubit** conditioned on the state of the control **qubit**. We investigated the possibility of implementing a CNOT logic gate using magnetically coupled impurity spins of diamond, namely the electron spin-1 carried by the nitrogen-vacancy color center and the electron spin-12 carried by a nearby nitrogen atom in substitutional position (P1 center). It is shown that a 96ns gate time with a high-fidelity can be realized by means of pulsed electron spin resonance spectroscopy....(Color online) |A|2 is the probability of finding the spin system in the state |⇓↓〉. It oscillates at the high frequency D (=2.88GHz). The frequency of the beats is χ/2 (=16.7MHz). The amplitude of oscillations is also modulated by an additional cosine wave signal of frequency χ (see text). |C|2 is the probability of finding the spin system in the state |0↓〉. It oscillates at the low frequency χ. It is almost zero in the time interval 90–100ns. The probability of finding spin system in the state |⇑↓〉, |B|2, has the same oscillations than |A|2 but it is anti-phase (see Fig. 3).

...Experimental PTO torque signal variation over time with increasing frequencies.
...Average PTO power as a function of **oscillating** **frequency** for straight (♦: solid line) and bent leg (□: broken line) tines (**oscillation** angle β=+27°).
...Based on the published benefits of oscillatory tillage, a subsoiler was developed at the University of South Australia, which had two deep working oscillatory tines and could be fitted with four shallow leading tines for increased loosening efficiency. A series of field trials were conducted in a sandy-loam soil to determine the most efficient setting of the tine's oscillatory motion and to compare the effect of using straight or bentleg tines. The tines were oscillated with an amplitude at the tip of ±69mm and an oscillation angle of 27° using a forward speed of 3km/h. The **frequency** of oscillation was varied from 1.9 to 8.8Hz. Analysis showed that the underside of the oscillating tine pushed rearward on the soil during part of the oscillation cycle, this decreased the draft in comparison to rigid tillage from 25.8 to 9.3kN. Increasing oscillation **frequency**, increased the PTO power requirement from 2.5kW at 1.9Hz to 26.3kW at 8.8Hz. The peaks and troughs in draft and torque were able to be aligned with the various phases of the oscillating tillage. An optimum oscillation **frequency** of 3.3Hz (velocity ratio of 1.5) was observed for minimum power to operate the oscillating subsoiler. Whilst at this setting, the combined draft and PTO power was similar to the draft power of rigid tillage, but when considering the higher losses due to tractive efficiency and lower PTO power losses, the oscillating tillage would be expected to require around 27% less engine power than rigid tillage....Optimising oscillation **frequency** in oscillatory tillage...Dominant frequency of torque signal over the oscillating frequency range.

Characterization of lifetime of NV center spins. (a) Ramsey interference of NV S1 (circle) and NV S2 (diamond). The oscillation in Ramsey signal originates from the beating among different transitions corresponding to the host three 14N nuclear spin states. The oscillation frequency of Ramsey signal is equal to microwave detuning from spin resonance. Solid lines ~exp[−(t/T2⁎)m] fit the experimental data points, where m is a free parameter. (b) Comparison of Hahn echo coherence time T2 of NV S1 (circle) and NV S2 (diamond). The solid lines are fits to ~exp[−(t/T2)p], in which p is a fit parameter.
...Detection and manipulation of the **qubit**. (a) Fluorescence image of nanodiamond prepared on the CPW transmission line. NV S1 is circled. The inset is a photo of CPW with 20μm gaps fabricated on a silica glass. (b) CW ODMR spectrum for NV S1. The inset is energy levels of NV center. A 532nm laser is used to excite and initialize the NV center. Fluorescence is collected by a confocal microscope. (c) Rabi **oscillation** of NV S1. Rabi **oscillation** period is about 62ns. (d) Hahn echo and CPMG control pulse sequences. πx (πy) implies the direction of microwave magnetic fields parallel to x (y).
...Spectral density of the spin bath. (a) NV S1, (b) NV S2. All values of spectral density S(ω) of the spin bath are extracted from the CPMG data (blue points). Each blue data point represents a specific probed **frequency** ω=πn/t, in which n is the number of control pulses and t is the specific duration. The red points are the average values at a certain **frequency**. The mean spectral density is fit to the Lorentzian function (Eq. (3)) (green line). (For interpretation of the references to color in this figure caption, the reader is referred to the web version of this article.)
...Overcoming the spin **qubit** decoherence is a challenge for quantum science and technology. We investigate the decoherence process in nanodiamonds by Carr–Purcell–Meiboom–Gill (CPMG) technique at room temperature. We find that the coherence time T2 scales as nγ. The elongation effect of coherence time can be represented by a constant power of the number of pulses n. Considering the filter function of CPMG decoupling sequence as a δfunction, the spectrum density of noise has been reconstructed directly from the coherence time measurements and a Lorentzian noise power spectrum model agrees well with the experiment. These results are helpful for the application of nanodiamonds to nanoscale magnetic imaging....Characterization of lifetime of NV center spins.

Nonlinear **oscillators** are widely used in biology, physics and engineering for modeling and control. They are interesting because of their synchronization properties when coupled to other dynamical systems. In this paper, we propose a learning rule for **oscillators** which adapts their **frequency** to the **frequency** of any periodic or pseudo-periodic input signal. Learning is done in a dynamic way: it is part of the dynamical system and not an offline process. An interesting property of our model is that it is easily generalizable to a large class of **oscillators**, from phase **oscillators** to relaxation **oscillators** and strange attractors with a generic learning rule. One major feature of our learning rule is that the **oscillators** constructed can adapt their **frequency** without any signal processing or the need to specify a time window or similar free parameters. All the processing is embedded in the dynamics of the adaptive **oscillator**. The convergence of the learning is proved for the Hopf **oscillator**, then numerical experiments are carried out to explore the learning capabilities of the system. Finally, we generalize the learning rule to non-harmonic **oscillators** like relaxation **oscillators** and strange attractors....Adaptive **frequency** **oscillator**...Dynamic Hebbian learning in adaptive **frequency** **oscillators**...The left plot of this figure represents **the** evolution of ω(t) when **the** adaptive Hopf **oscillator** is coupled to **the** z variable of **the** Lorenz attractor. The right plot represents **the** z variable of **the** Lorenz attractor. We clearly see that **the** adaptive Hopf oscillators can correctly learn **the** pseudo-**frequency** of **the** Lorenz attractor. See **the** text for more details.
...We show **the** adaptation of **the** Van der Pol **oscillator** to **the** **frequencies** of various input signals: (**a**) **a** simple sinusoidal input (F=sin(40t)), (b) **a** sinusoidal input with uniformly distributed noise (F=sin(40t)+uniform noise in [−0.5,0.5]), (c) **a** square input (F=square(40t)) and (d) **a** sawtooth input (F=sawtooth(40t)). For each experiment, we set ϵ=0.7 and α=100 and we show three plots. The right one shows **the** evolution of ω(t). The upper left graph is **a** plot of **the** oscillations, x, of **the** system, at **the** beginning of **the** learning. The lower graph shows **the** oscillations at **the** end of learning. In both graphs, we also plotted **the** input signal (dashed). In each experiment, ω converges to ω≃49.4, which corresponds to oscillations with **a** **frequency** of 40 rad s−1 like **the** input and thus **the** **oscillator** correctly adapts **its** **frequency** to **the** **frequency** of **the** input.

There are two plots, for **the** dotted line **the** **oscillator** is not coupled and for **the** plain line **the** **oscillator** is coupled to F=sin30t. The strength of coupling is ϵ=2. We clearly see basins of phase-locking, **the** main one for **frequency** of oscillations 30. The other major basins appear each 30n (dotted horizontal lines). We also notice small entrainment basins for some **frequencies** of **the** form 30pq. For **a** more detailed discussion of these results refer to **the** text.

Phase analysis in high-**frequency** oscillation...high-**frequency** oscillation...Summary of resonance frequencies found in all 10 babies (1 and 2 represents first and second run, respectively)
...A screen from our phase analysis program, showing phase analysis performed at four points of the respiratory cycle: top of breath, mid-inspiration, mid-expiration and bottom of breath. Corresponding points from the driving trace and the mouth pressure trace are matched and the phase difference calculated. In this case, the phase difference at the top of breath is 0° at an oscillating frequency of 20 Hz.
...Summary of resonance **frequencies** found in all 10 babies (1 and 2 represents first and second run, respectively)
...In an oscillating system driven by a sine wave pump, the resonance **frequency** of the respiratory system can be determined using phase analysis. At resonance **frequency**, when elastance and inertance cancel out, flow becomes in-phase with resistance. In premature infants with respiratory distress syndrome, owing to surfactant deficiency, localized areas of hyperinflation and collapse develop, resulting in complex changes in overall pulmonary mechanics. We investigated the effect of measuring resonance **frequency** of the respiratory system by phase analysis at different points of the respiratory cycle: end of inspiration, end of expiration, mid-inspiration and mid-expiration. Ten ventilated premature infants with respiratory distress syndrome were studied, gestational age ranged from 24 to 30 weeks (mean 27.6 weeks) and birth weight ranged from 0.7 to 1.505 kg (mean 0.984 kg). Results: The resonance **frequency** was consistently higher when measured at the end of inspiration compared with the end of expiration. The expected trend of phase variation, that is, negative below the resonance **frequency** and positive above, was most consistently found when analysis was done at the end of inspiration. Conclusions: These findings were most likely a result of the complexity of pulmonary mechanics in the surfactant-deficient lungs, rendering the single compartment model we based our theory on inadequate. However, phase analysis performed at the end of inspiration seemed to produce the most reliable and consistent results....A screen from our phase analysis program, showing phase analysis performed at four points of the respiratory cycle: top of breath, mid-inspiration, mid-expiration and bottom of breath. Corresponding points from the driving trace and the mouth pressure trace are matched and the phase difference calculated. In this case, the phase difference at the top of breath is 0° at an **oscillating** **frequency** of 20 Hz.
...high-**frequency** **oscillation**...In an **oscillating** system driven by a sine wave pump, the resonance **frequency** of the respiratory system can be determined using phase analysis. At resonance **frequency**, when elastance and inertance cancel out, flow becomes in-phase with resistance. In premature infants with respiratory distress syndrome, owing to surfactant deficiency, localized areas of hyperinflation and collapse develop, resulting in complex changes in overall pulmonary mechanics. We investigated the effect of measuring resonance **frequency** of the respiratory system by phase analysis at different points of the respiratory cycle: end of inspiration, end of expiration, mid-inspiration and mid-expiration.

We examine the effect of dissipation on the laser control of a process that transforms a state into a superposed state. We consider a two-dimensional double well of a single potential energy surface. In the context of reactivity, the objective of the control is the localization in a given well, for instance the creation of an enantiomeric form whereas for quantum gates, this control corresponds to one of the transformation of the Hadamard gate. The environment is either modelled by coupling few harmonic **oscillators** (up to five) to the system or by an effective interaction with an Ohmic bath. In the discrete case, dynamics is carried out exactly by using the coupled harmonic adiabatic channels. In the continuous case, Markovian and non-Markovian dynamics are considered. We compare two laser control strategies: the Stimulated Raman Adiabatic Passage (STIRAP) method and the optimal control theory. Analytical estimations for the control by adiabatic passage in a Markovian environment are also derived....Dynamics controlled by f-STIRAP strategy for the preparation of the superposed state |R〉. Panels (a) and (b) show, respectively, the evolution of the localization in the right well for different values of λ and the Rabi **frequencies** of the different pulses.

Quantum gates are optimized for the IR active high **frequency** modes of MnBr(CO)5-complexes. We investigate whether the selectivity for quantum gates is conserved for energetically close lying **qubits** of different symmetry that are nevertheless simultaneously addressable with the same laser pulse. The **qubits** are encoded in different vibrational normal modes, which are separated only by 50cm−1. Furthermore the influence of additional non-**qubit** modes on the efficiency of the quantum gates optimized for the pure **qubit** system is studied. Potential perturbers are low **frequency** vibrational modes highly populated at room temperature or vibrational modes that seems predestined to interfere during the gate operation. To prevent translational motion, the possibility of spatial localization is explored by incorporation of the carbonyl complex in the unit cell of a MFI zeolite....PES of the **qubit** system (a) and total dipole surface (b).
