The weak localization/antilocalization, recognized as a precursory state of the Anderson localization, was elucidated both theoretically and experimentally already in 1980’s in the realm of “diffusion approximation” [1]. A theoretical model premised on the Rashba effect was then developed in 1990’s, shortly before the “gate-induced” weak localization-to-antilocalization transition was confirmed experimentally [2].  After this experimental confirmation, the weak antilocalization effect has become recognized as a useful tool for investigating the spin-orbit interaction (SOI) in various two-dimensional electron systems (2DES).  It is deemed that

Frequency estimation is an important problem in the field of quantum metrology in which the probe system is a collection of $N$ qubits and the parameter of interest, $\omega$, is the frequency corresponding to the gap between the two qubit energy eigenvalues.
