Abstract (English)

In this thesis we investigate the interplay between dissipation and driving in nonlinear quantum systems for a special setup: a flux qubit read out by a DC-SQUID - a nonlinear quantum oscillator. The latter is embedded in a harmonic bath, thereby mediating dissipation to the qubit. Two different approaches are elaborated: First we consider a composite qubit-SQUID system and add the bath ...

In dieser Dissertation wird das Wechselspiel zwischen Dissipation und Antrieb in nichtlinearen Quantensystemen für ein spezielles System untersucht: Ein „Flux qubit“ wird von einem DC-SQUID- einem nichtlinearen quantenmechanischem Oszillator - ausgelesen. Letzterer ist in ein harmonisches Bad eingebettet und überträgt dadurch Dissipation auf das qubit. Zwei unterschiedliche Herangehensweisen ...
