Quantum measurement with chaotic apparatus

2013-04-11T10:04:07Z (GMT) by Mark Everitt W.J. Munro T.P. Spiller
We study a dissipative quantum mechanical model of the projective measurement of a qubit. We demonstrate how a correspondence limit, damped quantum oscillator can realise chaotic-like or periodic trajectories that emerge in sympathy with the projection of the qubit state, providing a model of the measurement process.
