 class qutip_qip.pulse.Drift(qobj=None)[source]
Bases:
object
Representation of the timeindependent drift Hamiltonian. Usually its the intrinsic evolution of the quantum system that can not be tuned.

qutip.Qobj
or list ofqutip.Qobj
, optional The drift Hamiltonians.
 qobj
 Attributes
 qobj: list ofclass:qutip.Qobj
A list of the the drift Hamiltonians.
 add_drift(qobj, targets)[source]
Add a Hamiltonian to the drift.
 Parameters
 qobj:class:qutip.Qobj
The collapse operator of the lindblad noise.
 targets: list
target qubits of the collapse operator (or subquantum system of other dimensions).
 get_full_tlist()[source]
Drift has no tlist, this is just a place holder to keep it unified with
Pulse
. It returns None.
 get_ideal_qobjevo(dims)[source]
Get the QobjEvo representation of the drift Hamiltonian.
 Parameters
 dims: int or list
Dimension of the system. If int, we assume it is the number of qubits in the system. If list, it is the dimension of the component systems.

 ideal_evo:class:qutip.QobjEvo
A QobjEvo representing the drift evolution.
 class qutip_qip.pulse.Pulse(qobj, targets, tlist=None, coeff=None, spline_kind='step_func', label='')[source]
Bases:
object
Representation of a control pulse and the pulse dependent noise. The pulse is characterized by the ideal control pulse, the coherent noise and the lindblad noise. The later two are lists of noisy evolution dynamics. Each dynamic element is characterized by four variables:
qobj
,targets
,tlist
andcoeff
.See examples for different construction behavior.
 Parameters
 qobj
qutip.Qobj
The Hamiltonian of the ideal pulse.
 targets: list
target qubits of the ideal pulse (or subquantum system of other dimensions).
 tlist: arraylike, optional
Time sequence of the ideal pulse. A list of time at which the timedependent coefficients are applied.
tlist
does not have to be equidistant, but must have the same length or one element shorter compared tocoeff
. See documentation for the parameterspline_kind
. coeff: arraylike or bool, optional
Timedependent coefficients of the ideal control pulse. If an array, the length must be the same or one element longer compared to
tlist
. See documentation for the parameterspline_kind
. If a bool, the coefficient is a constant 1 or 0. spline_kind: str, optional
Type of the coefficient interpolation: “step_func” or “cubic”.
“step_func”: The coefficient will be treated as a step function. E.g.
tlist=[0,1,2]
andcoeff=[3,2]
, means that the coefficient is 3 in t=[0,1) and 2 in t=[2,3). It requireslen(coeff)=len(tlist)1
orlen(coeff)=len(tlist)
, but in the second case the last element ofcoeff
has no effect.“cubic”: Use cubic interpolation for the coefficient. It requires
len(coeff)=len(tlist)
 label: str
The label (name) of the pulse.
 qobj
Examples
Create a pulse that is turned off
>>> Pulse(sigmaz(), 0) >>> Pulse(sigmaz(), 0, None, None)
Create a time dependent pulse
>>> tlist = np.array([0., 1., 2., 4.]) >>> coeff = np.array([0.5, 1.2, 0.8]) >>> spline_kind = "step_func" >>> Pulse(sigmaz(), 0, tlist=tlist, coeff=coeff, spline_kind="step_func")
Create a time independent pulse
>>> Pulse(sigmaz(), 0, coeff=True)
Create a constant pulse with time range
>>> Pulse(sigmaz(), 0, tlist=tlist, coeff=True)
Create an dummy Pulse (H=0)
>>> Pulse(None, None)
