Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Quantum measurement has the advantages of high accuracy, high sensitivity, wide response range, and easy integration, which will break the classical measurement limit. Quantum precision measurement and related quantum information technology improve the methods of information acquisition and transmission, providing potentials for experiments and applications with high precision, and open a pathway for large-scale and high-performance quantum networks.

In recent years, technologies, including atomic magnetometer, atomic clock, optical frequency comb, Rydberg atom, and quantum weak measurement, have greatly enriched high-precision measurement methods. Meanwhile, fields including quantum key distribution, quantum time–frequency transfer, and quantum ranging have enhanced information transmission. These studies not only bring excellent technical performances but also drive the development of next-generation metrological technologies. In fact, a lot of symmetries exist in quantum technologies.

This Special Issue aims to serve as a platform for the presentation of new and improved techniques of quantum precision measurement and related quantum information technology, as well as the symmetric properties of these fields. In particular, the theoretical or experimental investigation and improvement of quantum information technology and other extended topics fall within the scope of this Special Issue.

The engineering of quantum computers requires the reliable characterization of qubits, quantum operations, and even the entire hardware. Quantum tomography is an indispensable framework in quantum characterization, verification, and validation (QCVV), which has been widely accepted by researchers. According to the tomographic target, quantum tomography can be categorized into quantum state tomography (QST), quantum process tomography (QPT), gate set tomography (GST), process tensor tomography (PTT), and instrument set tomography (IST). Standard quantum tomography toolkits generally consist of basic linear inverse methods and statistical maximum likelihood estimation (MLE)-based methods. Furthermore, the performance of standard methods, including effectiveness and efficiency, has been further developed by exploiting Bayesian estimation, neural networks, matrix completion techniques, etc. In this review, we introduce the fundamental quantum tomography techniques, including QST, QPT, GST, PTT, and IST. We first introduce the details of basic linear inverse methods. Then, the framework of MLE methods with constraints is summarized. Finally, we briefly introduce recent further research in developing the performance of tomography, utilizing some symmetry properties of the target. This review provides a primary getting-start in developing quantum tomography, which promotes quantum computer development. Full article
