Spontaneous decoherence as a result of randomness in the flow of time. (arXiv:2110.11343v1 [quant-ph]) 上午10:17 | L.I. Rozonoer | quant-ph updates on arXiv.org The hypothesis of the random flow of time is considered. To do this, the concepts of microscopic random time and macroscopic mean time, as well as random modular time are introduced. The possibilities of experimental verification of… Read more →

Characterizing quantum instruments: from non-demolition measurements to quantum error correction. (arXiv:2110.06954v1 [quant-ph]) 2021年10月16日 星期六 上午11:02 | Roman Stricker, Davide Vodola, Alexander Erhard, Lukas Postler, Michael Meth, Martin Ringbauer, Philipp Schindler, Rainer Blatt, Markus Müller, Thomas Monz | quant-ph updates on arXiv.org In quantum information processing quantum operations are often processed alongside measurements which result in classical data. Due to the… Read more →

Gravity-related collapse of the wave function and spontaneous heating: revisiting the experimental bounds. (arXiv:2109.14980v1 [quant-ph]) 上午9:47 | Andrea Vinante, Hendrik Ulbricht | quant-ph updates on arXiv.org The possibility that the collapse of the wave function in quantum mechanics is a real and ultimately connected to (classical) gravity has been debated for decades, with main contributions by Di\’osi and Penrose. In… Read more →

Objective consequentialism and the plurality of chances 上午8:00 | Latest Results for Synthese Abstract I claim that objective consequentialism (OC) faces a problem stemming from the existence in some situations of a plurality of chances relevant to the outcomes of an agent’s acts. I suggest that this phenomenon bears structural resemblance to the well-known Reference Class problem. I outline a… Read more →

On possible explanations for quantum contextuality. (arXiv:2109.07636v1 [quant-ph]) 上午9:32 | Alisson Tezzin | quant-ph updates on arXiv.org Recent research on quantum contextuality has been strongly centered on device-independent frameworks, such as the many graph approaches to contextuality and the celebrated sheaf-theoretical approach. Contextuality is described in these frameworks as a property of data only, making it possible to characterize and… Read more →

Parity-Time Symmetry via Time-Dependent non-Unitary Gauge Fields. (arXiv:2109.03846v1 [physics.class-ph]) 上午9:54 | Mario A. Quiroz-Juárez, Zachary A. Cochran, José L. Aragón, Yogesh N. Joglekar, Roberto de J. León-Montiel | quant-ph updates on arXiv.org Parity-Time (PT) symmetric systems have been widely recognized as fundamental building blocks for the development of novel, ultra-sensitive opto-electronic devices. However, arguably one of their major drawbacks is… Read more →

Gravitational redshift induces quantum interference. (arXiv:2109.00728v1 [quant-ph]) 上午10:13 | David Edward Bruschi, Andreas W. Schell | quant-ph updates on arXiv.org We use quantum field theory in curved spacetime to show that gravitational redshift induces a unitary transformation on the quantum state of propagating photons. This occurs for realistic photons characterized by a finite bandwidth, while ideal photons with sharp frequencies… Read more →
