lindbladian.m

Jump to: navigation, search

Generates a Lindblad superoperator from user-specified left-side and right-side product superoperators and calibrates it using the experimental relaxation rate of a user-specified state.

Syntax

    R=lindbladian(A_left,A_right,rho,rlx_rate)

Arguments

    A_left   - left side product superoperator of the 
               interaction that is causing relaxation
               (see operator.m and hamiltonian.m)

    A_right  - right side product superoperator of the
               same interaction

    rho      - the state vector whose relaxation rate
               is known from the experiment 

    rlx_rate - experimental relaxation rate of rho

Outputs

    R        - Lindblad relaxation superoperator indu-
               ced by the interaction A, such that
               <rho|R|rho>/norm(rho,2)^2 = -rlx_rate
