Abstract

The effect of quantum dispersion (i.e. a multitude of quantum states corresponding to each value of an observable) on laboratory feedback optimal control is studied. It is shown by numerical and analytical means that including the variance of the observable in the objective functional as well as the presence of modest noise in the controls can steer the system into a low-variance quantum state or, if possible, into an eigenstate of the observable.
