QuantumVariable.get_measurement(plot=False, backend=None, shots=100000, compile=True, compilation_kwargs={}, subs_dic={}, circuit_preprocessor=None, filename=None, precompiled_qc=None)[source]#

Method for quick access to the measurement results of the state of the variable. This method returns a dictionary of the type {value : p} where p indicates the probability with which that value is measured.

plotBool, optional

Plots the measurement results as a historgram. The default is False.

backendBackendClient, optional

The backend on which to evaluate the quantum circuit. The default can be specified in the file default_backend.py.

shotsinteger, optional

The amount of shots to evaluate the circuit. The default is 10000.

compilebool, optional

Boolean indicating if the .compile method of the underlying QuantumSession should be called before. The default is True.

compilation_kwargsdict, optional

Keyword arguments for the compile method. For more details check QuantumSession.compile. The default is {}.

subs_dicdict, optional

A dictionary of Sympy symbols and floats to specify parameters in the case of a circuit with unspecified, abstract parameters. The default is {}.

circuit_preprocessorPython function, optional

A function which recieves a QuantumCircuit and returns one, which is applied after compilation and parameter substitution. The default is None.

filenamestring, optional

The location of where to save a generated plot. The default is None.


A dictionary of values and their corresponding measurement probabilities.


If the containing QuantumSession is in a quantum environment, it is not possible to execute measurements.


We create an integer QuantumFloat, encode the value 1 and bring the qubit with significance 2 in superposition. We utilize the Qiskit transpiler by transpiling into the gate set \(\{\text{CX}, \text{U}\}\)

>>> from qrisp import QuantumFloat, h
>>> qf = QuantumFloat(3,-1)
>>> qf[:] = 1
>>> h(qf[2])
>>> mes_results = qf.get_measurement(transpilation_kwargs = {"basis_gates" : ["cx", "u"]})  # noqa:501
>>> print(mes_results)
{1.0: 0.5, 3.0: 0.5}
