Quantum Analyzer Module

The Quantum Analyzer (QA) module corresponds to the Quantum Analyzer Result Logger tab of LabOne user interface (UI). This nodule allows the user to record multiple measurement shots in its history tab and to apply matrix transformations on the measured complex signals, i.e. $I$ and $Q$ components obtained by weighted integration. It applies transform operations on the measured signals with the following order.

  • Shift or translation
  • Rotation
  • Scaling or dilation

The transform parameters are set by the module nodes and displayed in the control sub-tab of the QA tab in LabOne UI. The equivalent transformed outcome is obtained by matrix multiplication of the corresponding operators as shown in the following equation:

$$ \begin{pmatrix} X \\ Y \\ \end{pmatrix} = \begin{bmatrix} S_I & 0 \\ 0 & S_Q \\ \end{bmatrix} \begin{bmatrix} \cos\theta & -\sin\theta \\ \sin\theta & \cos\theta \\ \end{bmatrix} \begin{pmatrix} I-I_0 \\ Q-Q_0 \\ \end{pmatrix} $$

where $I_0$ and $Q_0$ are shift parameters, $\theta$ is rotation angle in degree, and $S_I$ and $S_Q$ are scaling factors. All the measurement shots are recorded in the History sub-tab of the QA tab and can be saved in CSV, HDF5, and MATLAB formats.

Node Documentation

This section describes all the nodes in the Quantum Analyzer Module node tree organized by branch.

clearhistory

/clearhistory

Properties: Read, Write
Type: Integer (64 bit)
Unit: None

Remove all records from the history list.

historylength

/historylength

Properties: Read, Write
Type: Integer (64 bit)
Unit: None

Maximum number of entries stored in the measurement history.

rotation

/rotation

Properties: Read, Write
Type: Double
Unit: None

Rotation angle applied to the recorded complex values.

save

/save/csvlocale

Properties: Read, Write
Type: String
Unit: None

The locale to use for the decimal point character and digit grouping character for numerical values in CSV files: "C": Dot for the decimal point and no digit grouping (default); "" (empty string): Use the symbols set in the language and region settings of the computer.

/save/csvseparator

Properties: Read, Write
Type: String
Unit: None

The character to use as CSV separator when saving files in this format.

/save/directory

Properties: Read, Write
Type: String
Unit: None

The base directory where files are saved.

/save/fileformat

Properties: Read, Write
Type: Integer (enumerated)
Unit: None

The format of the file for saving data.

Value Description
0 "mat": MATLAB
1 "csv": CSV
2 "zview": ZView (Impedance data only)
3 "sxm": SXM (Image format)
4 "hdf5": HDF5
/save/filename

Properties: Read, Write
Type: String
Unit: None

Defines the sub-directory where files are saved. The actual sub-directory has this name with a sequence count (per save) appended, e.g. daq_000.

/save/save

Properties: Read, Write
Type: Integer (64 bit)
Unit: None

Initiate the saving of data to file. The saving is done in the background. When the save has finished, the module resets this parameter to 0.

/save/saveonread

Properties: Read, Write
Type: Integer (64 bit)
Unit: None

Automatically save the data to file immediately before reading out the data from the module using the read() command. Set this parameter to 1 if you want to save data to file when running the module continuously and performing intermediate reads.

scalingi

/scalingi

Properties: Read, Write
Type: Double
Unit: None

Scaling factor applied to the I component of the recorded data points.

scalingq

/scalingq

Properties: Read, Write
Type: Double
Unit: None

Scaling factor applied to the Q component of the recorded data points.

shifti

/shifti

Properties: Read, Write
Type: Double
Unit: None

Translation shift applied to the I component of the recorded data points.

shiftq

/shiftq

Properties: Read, Write
Type: Double
Unit: None

Translation shift applied to the Q component of the recorded data points.
