|Issue Date:||22-May-2012||Citation:||Lü, X., Raynal, P., Englert, B.-G. (2012-05-22). Mutually unbiased bases for the rotor degree of freedom. Physical Review A - Atomic, Molecular, and Optical Physics 85 (5) : -. ScholarBank@NUS Repository. https://doi.org/10.1103/PhysRevA.85.052316||Abstract:||We consider the existence of a continuous set of mutually unbiased bases for the continuous and periodic degree of freedom that describes motion on a circle (rotor degree of freedom). By a singular mapping of the circle to the line, we find a first, but somewhat unsatisfactory, continuous set which does not relate to an underlying Heisenberg pair of complementary observables. Then, by a nonsingular mapping of the discrete angular momentum basis of the rotor onto the Fock basis for linear motion, we construct such a Heisenberg pair for the rotor and use it to obtain a second, fully satisfactory, set of mutually unbiased bases. © 2012 American Physical Society.||Source Title:||Physical Review A - Atomic, Molecular, and Optical Physics||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/115196||ISSN:||10502947||DOI:||10.1103/PhysRevA.85.052316|
