Estimating SARS-CoV-2 Infections from Deaths, Confirmed Cases, Tests, and Random Surveys
Nicholas J. Irons, Adrian E. Raftery
There are many sources of data giving information about the number of SARS-CoV-2 infections in the population, but all have major drawbacks, including biases…

Adaptive Rotating-Wave Approximation for Driven Open Quantum Systems
Brian Baker, Andy C. Y. Li, Nicholas Irons, Nathan Earnest, Jens Koch
We present a numerical method to approximate the long-time asymptotic solution $\rho_\infty(t)$ to the Lindblad master equation for an open quantum system…

Realization of a $\Lambda$ system with metastable states of a capacitively-shunted fluxonium
Nathan Earnest, Srivatsan Chakram, Yao Lu, Nicholas Irons, Ravi K. Naik, Nelson Leung, Leo Ocola, David A. Czaplewski, Brian Baker, Jay Lawrence, Jens Koch, David I. Schuster
We realize a $\Lambda$ system in a superconducting circuit, with metastable states exhibiting lifetimes up to 8\,ms. We exponentially suppress the tunneling…
