This performs n qubit tomography on a cirq circuit

A.1. State Tomography.
This is a high level interface for StateTomographyExperiment.
  • circuit – Circuit to do the tomography on.

  • qubits – Qubits to do the tomography on.

  • sampler – Sampler to collect the data from.

  • repetitions – Number of times to sample each rotation.

  • prerotations – Tuples of (phase_exponent, exponent) parameters for gates to apply to the qubits before measurement. The actual rotation applied will be cirq.PhasedXPowGate with the specified values of phase_exponent and exponent. If None, we use [(0, 0), (0, 0.5), (0.5, 0.5)], which corresponds to rotation gates [I, X**0.5, Y**0.5].


TomographyResult which contains the density matrix of the qubits determined by tomography.
