Feedback control of spin systems

Quantum Information processing, 2006.

The feedback stabilization problem for ensembles of coupled spin $ 1/2 $ systems is discussed from a control theoretic perspective. The noninvasive nature of the bulk measurement allows for a fully unitary and deterministic closed loop. The Lyapunov-based feedback design presented does not require spins that are selectively addressable. With this method, it is possible to obtain control inputs also for difficult tasks, like suppressing undesired couplings in ide ntical spin systems.
