Description of Work: 


Quantum Technology has been recognised as one of the most promising frontier technologies. Although great progress has already been made, a lot of fundamental research is still needed for this area to become mature enough to foster wider practical applications. Much research in this area can be formulated as quantum estimation and control problems. Parameter estimation (e.g., quantum state estimation, quantum phase estimation) and control design are two of critical tasks in the development of quantum technology. The objective of this project is to develop new theories and methods to enhance estimation and control capabilities as applied to quantum optical systems.

Description of Work:

  • Formulate a collection of practical tasks arising in quantum optics as estimation and control problems with a well-defined performance index.
  • Develop new theories and algorithms to achieve improved estimation and control performance for quantum optical systems.
