class boulderopal.ions.ComplexOptimizableDrive(count, maximum_rabi_rate, addressing, name='drive')

A piecewise-constant complex-valued optimizable drive. The main function will try to find the optimal values for it.


  • count (int) – The number of segments in the piecewise-constant drive.
  • maximum_rabi_rate (float) – The maximum value that the modulus of the drive can take at each segment, in units of rad/s.
  • addressing (int or tuple [ int , ... ]) – The indices of the ions addressed by the drive.
  • name (str , optional) – The identifier of the drive. Defaults to “drive”.
