Abstract We propose a quantum trajectory analysis of a scheme to measure the states of a coupled-dot device (qubit) where there is a fluctuating energy gap Δ between the two states. The system consists of the qubit and a readout dot coupled to source and drain leads. The tunnel rate through the detector is conditioned by the occupation number of the nearer quantum dot (target) of the qubit and therefore probes the states of the qubit. We derive a Lindblad-form master equation to calculate the unconditional evolution of the qubit and a conditional stochastic master equation calculating the conditional evolution for different tunneling rates. The results show the effects of various device parameters and provide the optimum selection and combination of the system structure.
