We discuss the role of quantum coherence in the energy fluctuations of open quantum systems. To this aim, we introduce a protocol to which we refer as the end-point measurement scheme, allowing us to define the statistics of energy changes as a function of energy measurements performed only after the evolution of the initial state. At the price of an additional uncertainty on the initial energies, this approach prevents the loss of initial quantum coherences and enables the estimation of their effects on energy fluctuations. We demonstrate our findings by running an experiment on the IBM Quantum Experience superconducting qubit platform.

Abstract

We discuss the role of quantum coherence in the energy fluctuations of open quantum systems. To this aim, we introduce a protocol to which we refer as the end-point measurement scheme, allowing us to define the statistics of energy changes as a function of energy measurements performed only after the evolution of the initial state. At the price of an additional uncertainty on the initial energies, this approach prevents the loss of initial quantum coherences and enables the estimation of their effects on energy fluctuations. We demonstrate our findings by running an experiment on the IBM Quantum Experience superconducting qubit platform.
