Control Scheme Dynamically Maintains Unstable Quantum Systems

August 27, 2013 12:59 pm | by Georgia Tech | News | Comments

A simple pendulum has two equilibrium points: hanging in the “down” position and perfectly inverted in the “up” position. While the “down” position is a stable equilibrium, the inverted position is definitely not stable. Any infinitesimal deviation from perfectly inverted is enough to cause the pendulum to eventually swing down.
