[en] Interaction-free measurements introduced by Elitzur and Vaidman (1993) allow finding infinitely fragile objects without destroying them. Paradoxical features of these and related measurements are discussed. The resolution of the paradoxes in the framework of the Many-Worlds Interpretation is proposed. (orig.)
[en] The decimation filter is necessary to prevent aliasing during the process of decreasing sampling rate, which is called decimation. Due its simplicity, the most popular decimation filter is the comb filter. However, this filter exhibits a high passband droop in the passband magnitude characteristic, which must be avoided to prevent the distortion of the decimated signal. In this paper we present the sharpening technique to improve comb passband characteristic. In order to decrease complexity introduced by sharpening, we also consider two-stage structure where the sharpening is applied only at the second stage. Different examples are included to illustrate the benefits of the proposed method
[en] The variance of an arbitrary pointer observable is considered for the general case that a complex weak value is measured using a complex valued pointer state. For the typical cases where the pointer observable is either its position or momentum, the associated expressions for the pointer's variance after the measurement contain a term proportional to the product of the weak value's imaginary part with the rate of change of the third central moment of position relative to the initial pointer state just prior to the time of the measurement interaction when position is the observable--or with the initial pointer state's third central moment of momentum when momentum is the observable. These terms provide a means for controlling pointer position and momentum variance and identify control conditions which, when satisfied, can yield variances that are smaller after the measurement than they were before the measurement. Measurement sensitivities which are useful for estimating weak-value measurement accuracies are also briefly discussed.
[en] A measurement process needs a time duration in many actual cases, such as the measurement on atomic system by the electron shelving technique. If this timescale is deficient, the measurement would be incomplete. Here, we investigate the quantum Zeno effect by incomplete measurements. We show that an efficient freeze of the quantum state by incomplete measurements is available. And interestingly, this state freeze can be more significant than that obtained in the complete measurement case if the parameters of incomplete measurements are properly set.
