The density matrix of a n-dimensional quantum system, can be estimated by repeatedly performing projections on n+1 measurement operators. Ideally, the eigenbases of these operators form a set of mutually unbiased bases . However, the situation is different if, due to restrictions in the experimental setup, only certain measurments are available. One example for this is the restriction to single-shot spin-to-charge conversion measurements for two spin qubits (n=4) in a double quantum dot where measuring the charge state is equivalent to projections on individual quantum states. In order to perform state tomography under this restriction for n dimensions, n2−1 different quantum states need to be selected. While it is possible to use states from a set of mutually unbiased bases , we present here numerically optimized sets of quantum states which perform significantly better regarding the expected precision of the tomography scheme .
