Abstract

Hilbert–Schmidt speed (HSS) is a special type of quantum statistical speed which is easily computable, since it does not require diagonalization of the system state. We find that, when both HSS and quantum Fisher information (QFI) are calculated with respect to the phase parameter encoded into the initial state of an n-qubit register, the zeros of the HSS dynamics are actually equal to those of the QFI dynamics. Moreover, the signs of the time-derivatives of both HSS and QFI exactly coincide. These findings, obtained via a thorough investigation of several paradigmatic open quantum systems, show that HSS and QFI exhibit the same qualitative time evolution. Therefore, HSS reveals itself as a powerful figure of merit for enhancing quantum phase estimation in an open quantum system made of n qubits. Our results also provide strong evidence for both contractivity of the HSS under memoryless dynamics and its sensitivity to system-environment information backflows to detect the non-Markovianity in high-dimensional systems, as suggested in previous studies.
