Diagrammatic sketch of a qubit coupled with structured environments. The environment in the 1st case consists of a two level system coupled to a bath. The environment in 2nd case is a damped harmonic oscillator.
... (1st case) P(t) as a function of time for the on-resonance case (ΔA=ΔB), where the decoherence is enhanced with T. Inset (a): Fourier analysis of P(t). One can see that two frequencies are dominating the dynamics and the peaks locate at ΔA±g0. Inset (b): The effective spectral density Jeff(ω). Here, it is not πJeff(ΔA) but πJeff(ΔA±g0) indicates the damping rate γA.
... (2nd case) P(t) as a function of time, where the decoherence is enhanced with T. Inset (a): Fourier analysis of the main plot. One sees that two frequencies are dominating the dynamics and the splitting of the peaks increases with temperature. Inset (b): The effective spectral density Jeff(ω). The square, triangle and circle points correspond to the dominant frequencies of P(t) in different temperatures, respectively. One can see that smaller Jeff’s, which characterize long time dynamics, are almost the same for three different temperatures. This is the reason why the damping rate of P(t) is almost not changing with different temperatures.

Comparison between simulated evolution of a qubit's Rabi oscillations and processed measurement signal for p¯=0.5, Δp=0.1 and τ=TR/16. Dashed curve: |c1|2 over time (in units of the Rabi period TR) in the presence of weak measurements. Dotted curve: |c1|2 over time in the absence of measurements. The solid curve corresponds to the evolution of the estimate g based on the measurement results.

The Allan deviation of fractional temperature fluctuations of a liquid nitrogen bath (curve 1) and a solid nitrogen bath (curve 2) measured with the ac-bridge. Curve 3 are the measured room temperature fractional fluctuations. Curve 4 are the measured fractional temperature fluctuations in the cavity determined by measuring the oscillatorfrequency fluctuations cooled by a liquid nitrogen bath (77 K). Curve 5 are the measured fractional temperature fluctuations in the cavity determined by measuring the oscillatorfrequency fluctuations cooled to 58 K by a solid nitrogen bath and a foil heater and temperature controller. Curve 6 are the inferred fractional temperature fluctuations in the cavity passively cooled by a solid nitrogen bath (52 K).

(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).

(Color online.) Schematic diagram of the displaced oscillator basis. The horizontal axis x′=x2mω0ℏ. All three wells maintain the same harmonic character, and usual eigenstates as well. The equilibrium position of the left (or the right) well is shifted by a specific constant. The shift direction is to the left (or right) when the qubits are in |+〉=|e1,e2〉 (or |−〉=|g1,g2〉). The middle potential well which is double degenerate corresponds to non-displaced case in which the states of the two qubits are opposite, i.e., |0〉 (|g1,e2〉 or |e1,g2〉), and the equilibrium position is higher than the others. The eigenstates which have the same value of n in the left well are degenerate with that in the right well.
