Paper Abstract

Phase-Space Tomography has been recently applied, in complete analogy to classical optics tomography, for the reconstruction of quantum states. The quantum systems thus far considered move in potentials for which only the coordinates of phase space are modified by simple affine transformations--shearing and rotation--, the state Wigner quasi-probability distribution remaining invariant. In this work we consider the case of the truncated harmonic oscillator, a more general, and potentially useful, potential, and show that state reconstruction is still feasible.
