Quantum filtering for systems driven by fields in single-photon states or superposition of coherent states
Gough, John Edward; James, Matthew R.; Nurdin, Hendra I.; Combes, Joshua
We derive the stochastic master equations, that is to say, quantum filters, and master equations for an arbitrary quantum system probed by a continuous-mode bosonic input field in two types of nonclassical states. Specifically, we consider the cases where the state of the input field is a superposition or combination of (1) a continuous-mode, single-photon wave packet and vacuum, and (2) any continuous-mode coherent states.

Single Photon Quantum Filtering Using non-Markov Embeddings
Gough, John Edward; James, Matthew R.; Nurdin, Hendra I.
We determine quantum master and filter equations for continuous measurement of systems coupled to input fields in certain non-classical continuous-mode states, specifically single photon states. The quantum filters are shown to be derivable from an embedding into a larger non-Markovian system, and are given by a system of coupled stochastic differential equations.

On structure-preserving transformations of the Itō generator matrix for model reduction of quantum feedback networks
Gough, John Edward; Nurdin, H. I.
Two standard operations of model reduction for quantum feedback networks, elimination of internal connections under the instantaneous feedback limit and adiabatic elimination of fast degrees of freedom, are cast as structure-preserving transformations of Itō generator matrices. It is shown that the order in which they are applied is inconsequential.

A Protocol For Cooling and Controlling Composite Systems by Local Interactions

We discuss an explicit protocol which allows one to externally cool and control a composite system by operating on a small subset of it. The scheme permits to transfer arbitrary and unknown quantum states from a memory on the network ('upload access') as well as the inverse ('download access'). In particular it yields a method for cooling the system.
