qiskit.pulse.library.GaussianDeriv(duration, amp, sigma, angle=0.0, name=None, limit_amplitude=None) GitHub(opens in a new tab)

An unnormalized Gaussian derivative pulse.

The Gaussian function is centered around the halfway point of the pulse, and the envelope of the pulse is given by:

f(x)=Axμsigma2exp[(xμ2sigma)2],0<=x<durationf(x) = -\text{A}\frac{x-\mu}{\text{sigma}^{2}}\exp \left[-\left(\frac{x-\mu}{2\text{sigma}}\right)^{2}\right] , 0 <= x < duration

where A=amp×exp(i×angle)\text{A} = \text{amp} \times\exp\left(i\times\text{angle}\right), and μ=duration/2\mu=\text{duration}/2.

Parameters

Returns
