qiskit.pulse.instructions.Delay

class Delay(duration, channel, name=None)[source]

A blocking instruction with no other effect. The delay is used for aligning and scheduling other instructions.

Example

To schedule an instruction at time = 10, on a channel assigned to the variable channel, the following could be used:

sched = Schedule(name="Delay instruction example")
sched += Delay(10, channel)
sched += Gaussian(duration, amp, sigma, channel)

The channel will output no signal from time=0 up until time=10.

Create a new delay instruction.

No other instruction may be scheduled within a Delay.

Parameters
  • duration (int) – Length of time of the delay in terms of dt.

  • channel (Channel) – The channel that will have the delay.

  • name (Optional[str]) – Name of the delay for display purposes.

__init__(duration, channel, name=None)[source]

Create a new delay instruction.

No other instruction may be scheduled within a Delay.

Parameters
  • duration (int) – Length of time of the delay in terms of dt.

  • channel (Channel) – The channel that will have the delay.

  • name (Optional[str]) – Name of the delay for display purposes.

Methods

__init__(duration, channel[, name])

Create a new delay instruction.

append(schedule[, name])

Return a new Schedule with schedule inserted at the maximum time over all channels shared between self and schedule.

assign_parameters(value_dict)

Modify and return self with parameters assigned according to the input.

ch_duration(*channels)

Return duration of the supplied channels in this Instruction.

ch_start_time(*channels)

Return minimum start time for supplied channels.

ch_stop_time(*channels)

Return maximum start time for supplied channels.

draw([dt, style, filename, interp_method, …])

Plot the instruction.

flatten()

Return itself as already single instruction.

insert(start_time, schedule[, name])

Return a new Schedule with schedule inserted within self at start_time.

shift(time[, name])

Return a new schedule shifted forward by time.

Attributes

Command

draw(dt=1, style=None, filename=None, interp_method=None, scale=1, plot_all=False, plot_range=None, interactive=False, table=True, label=False, framechange=True, channels=None)

Plot the instruction.

Parameters
