The sketch of the qubit–detector systems considered in the paper. The qubit (two coupled quantum dots: x and y) is coupled electrostatically via U parameter with one of the detector QDs. Panels A, B and C correspond to the single-QD, double-QD and triple-QD detectors, respectively.
... Qubit QD occupations, nx(t), versus time for the DQD (TQD) detector – curves a–c (d, e) and for different initial conditions. Curves a and d: qubit is ‘frozen’ in the state nx=0,ny=1 until t=40 when the occupancies of all detector QDs achieve their steady state values. Curves b and e: qubit is ‘frozen’ in the state nx=0,ny=1 and also n2=n3=0 until t=40 when the occupancy of the first detector QD, n1, achieves its steady state value. Curve c: all couplings in the qubit–detector system are switched on at t=40 (i.e. nx=0,ny=1, n1=n2=0 for t<40). The other parameters: Vxy=4, U=4, Vij=0.5, Γ=1, εi=0 and μL=−μR=20.

... Nearby qubit QD occupation, nx(t), as a function of time for different forms of the detector depicted in Fig. 1. The upper (bottom) panel corresponds to the ΓL=ΓR=Γ=1 (Γ=0.2). The tunneling coupling between QDs is V=1 for the detector and Vxy=4 for the qubit, energy levels of all QDs are equal to εi=0, μL=−μR=10 and U=4. The qubit was ‘frozen’ in the configuration nx=0, ny=1 for t<15, i.e. until the detector QD occupancies and currents jL and j12 achieved their stationary values. The curves B and C are shifted down by 1 and 2 for clarity.

Diagrammatic representation of time-resolved CARS. Both time-circuit and Feynman diagram are illustrated for a non- overlapping sequence of P, S, P′ pulses, with central frequency of the S-pulse chosen to be outside the absorption spectrum of the B←X transition, to ensure that only the P(0,3) component of the third-order polarization is interrogated. In this dominant contribution, all three pulses act on bra (ket) state while the ket (bra) state evolves field free. Note, for the Feynman diagrams, we use the convention of Ref. , which is different than that of Ref. .
... The wavepacket picture associated with the evolution of the ket-state in the diagram of Fig. 1, for resonant CARS in iodine. The required energy matching condition for the AS radiation, Eq. (10b) of text, can only be met when the packet reaches the inner turning point of the B-surface. Once prepared, ϕ(3)(t) will oscillate, radiating periodically every time it reaches the inner turning point.
