Quantum Coherence

³Qubit excited-state probability, Pe, as a function of interaction time, , and detuning, , showing state transfer between the qubit and the resonator, in which a qubit excitation is exchanged with a phonon in the mechanical resonator (left, simulations; right, experiment). The red dash±dot line is at the resonator frequency, fr.´ (701) Aaron D. O¶Connell et al., ³Quantum Ground State and Single Phonon Control of a Mechanical Ground Resonator,´ Nature 464 (March 17, 2010), 697±703

Quantum Coherence

³The cross-peaks, indicated by dashed horizontal lines in Fig. 3b (red is the cross-peak above the diagonal, the black line is that below), are more clearly seen in Fig. 3c, in which the beats are well resolved and markedly anti-correlated²a signature of quantum coherence.´ (646) Elisabetta Collini et al., ³Coherently Wired Light-Harvesting in Photosynthetic Marine Algae at Ambient Temperature,´ Nature 463 (4 February 2010), 644±647
