AbstractA quantum resonator in a thermal-equilibrium state with a high temperature has a large average population and is featured with a significant occupation over Fock states with a high excitation number. In this work, we use the “free-evolution and measurement” cycles to optimize the measurement-based cooling in terms of the average-population reduction rate, the success probability, the target-state fidelity, and the numbers of running cycles. The scheme of projective measurement is generalized to POVM, based on which a quantum charging architecture is established to transform the thermal state to a population-inverted state. We then can modify an energetic yet unusable system to be a battery with a near-unit ratio of ergotropy (usable energy by unitary transformation) to energy. Through our schemes, quantum measurement becomes an interesting tool to shape quantum systems.
