Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

We discuss how generalized measurements may be performed on various atomic systems including cold ions and Rydberg atoms. The suggested methods rely on the fact that any generalized measurement can be identified with a unitary transformation followed by a projective measurement in a higher-dimensional Hilbert space. If the information to be measured is stored in the form of atomic qubits this unitary transformation can be accomplished by redistributing the population of the relevant atomic levels.
