In part (1) of SPINS Lab #2, you measured the probabilities of all the possible spin components for each of the unknown initial states $\left|\psi_i\right\rangle(i=1,2,3,4)$. Using your data from that lab, find the unknown states $\left|\psi_1\right\rangle,\left|\psi_2\right\rangle,\left|\psi_3\right\rangle$, and $\left|\psi_4\right\rangle$. Express each of the unknown states as a linear superposition of the $S_z$ basis states $|+\rangle$ and $|-\rangle$. For each state, use your result to calculate the theoretical values of the probabilities for each component measurement and compare these theoretical predictions with your experimental results.

Solution

VerifiedIn this problem, we want to use the measurement outcome to identify the initial wavefunctions.
