Handle with quantum care

Deviation between Heff and full S-A evolution.

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) and the Department of Applied Mathematics at the University of Waterloo have developed a universal method to manipulate quantum systems while minimizing their exposure to noise. Unlike related control methods that are designed for a particular physical setting, this new method is universal and can be applied regardless of the type of experimental set-up.
