(B) Measured center transition frequency (symbols) as a function of reduced gate charge Ng for reduced flux φ=0 (right panel) and as a function of φ for Ng=0.5 (left panel), at 15mK. Spectroscopy is performed by measuring the switching probability p (105 events) when a continuous microwave irradiation of variable frequency is applied to the gate before readout. Continuous line: best fits used to determine circuit parameters. Inset: Narrowest line shape, obtained at the saddle point (Lorentzian fit with a FWHM Δν01=0.8MHz).

Typical convergence of an adaptive frequencyoscillator (Eqs. (1)–(3)) driven by a harmonic signal (I(t)=sin(2πt)) and different coupling constants K. The coupling constant determines the convergence speed and the amplitude of oscillations around the frequency of the driving signal in steady state — the higher K the faster the convergence and the larger the oscillations.
... (a) Typical convergence of an adaptive frequencyoscillator (Eqs. (1)–(3)) driven by a harmonic signal (I(t)=sin(2πt)). The frequencies converge in an oscillatory fashion towards the frequency of the input (indicated by the dashed line). After convergence it oscillates with a small amplitude around the frequency of the input. The coupling constant determines the convergence speed and the amplitude of oscillations around the frequency of the driving signal in steady state. In all figures, the top right panel shows the driving signals (note the different scales). (b)–(f) Non-harmonic driving signals. We depict representative results on the evolution of ωdωF=ω−ωFωF vs. time. The dashed line indicates the zero error between the intrinsic frequency ω and the base frequency ωF of the driving signals. (b) Square pulse I(t)=rect(ωFt), (c) Sawtooth I(t)=st(ωFt) (d) Chirp I(t)=cos(ωct) ωc=ωF(1+12(t1000)2). (Note that the graph of the input signal is illustrative only since the change in frequency takes much longer than illustrated.) (e) Signal with two non-commensurate frequencies I(t)=12[cos(ωFt)+cos(22ωFt)], i.e. a representative example how the system can evolve to different frequency components of the driving signal depending on the initial condition ωd(0)=ω(0)−ωF. (f) I(t) is the non-periodic output of the Rössler system. The Rössler signal has a 1/f broad-band spectrum, yet it has a clear maximum in the frequency spectrum. In order to assess the convergence we use ωF=2πfmax, where fmax is found numerically by FFT. The oscillator convergences to this frequency.
... (N=10000, K=0.1) — (a) The FFT (black line) of the Rössler signal (for t=[99800,100000]) in comparison with the distribution of the frequencies of the oscillators (grey bars, normalized to the number of oscillators) at time 105 s. The spectrum of the FFT has been discretized into the same bins as the statistics of the oscillators in order to allow for a good comparison with the results from the full-scale simulation. (b) Time-series of the output signal O(t) (bold line) vs the teaching signal T(t) (dashed line).
... Adaptive frequencyoscillator... The structure of the dynamical system that is capable to reproduce a given teaching signal T(t). The system is made up of a pool of adaptive frequencyoscillators. The mean field produced by the oscillators is fed back negatively on the oscillators. Due to the feedback structure and the adaptive frequency property of the oscillators it reconstructs the frequency spectrum of T(t) by the distribution of the intrinsic frequencies.
... Coupled oscillators... Frequency analysis... (a) (N=1000, K=200) — T(t) is a non-stationary input signal (cf. text), in contrast to Figs. 4 and 5 the histogram of the distribution of the frequency ωi is shown for every 5 s, the grey level corresponds to the number of oscillators in the bins (note the logarithmic scale). The thin white line indicates the theoretical instantaneous frequency. Thus, it can be seen that the distribution tracks very well the non-stationary spectrum, however about 4% of the oscillators diverge after the cross-over of the frequencies. (b) This plots outlines the maximum tracking performance of the system for non-stationary signal. The input signal has a sinusoidal varying frequency. The frequency response of the adaptation is plotted (see text for details). As comparison we plot the first-order transfer function HK∞ and the vertical line indicates ωs=1. (c) The grey area shows the region where the frequency response of the adaptation is H>22. While for slower non-stationary signals the upper bound is a function of K, the bound becomes independent of K for ωs>1 (red dashed line).

Nonlinear oscillator... Visibility dynamics in different timescales for initial state |Ψ2〉 and Γ=0. The timescale τp is associated to the decay of the envelope of the oscillations with characteristic time τr1. A very subtle increase in the amplitudes of the oscillations can be observed around t=τr2. The timescale of the fastest oscillations of the dynamics is τo.
... Visibility dynamics for initial state |Ψ2〉 and Γ varying from 0 to 0.1. For each value of Γ, the unit of time is chosen as the corresponding τp in (a), τr1 in (b), τr2 in (c), and τo in (d). For the majority of values of Γ investigated, the initial dynamics is flattened around t=2τp. Except for very small values of Γ, τr1 and τr2 are associated to partial revivals. When Γ increases, the number of fast initial oscillations decreases, but their characteristic durations are given by τo, which does not vary with Γ.

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.
