We theoretically study the measurement-induced dephasing caused by back action noise in quantum nondemolition measurements of a superconducting flux qubit which is coupled to a superconducting quantum interference device (SQUID). Our analytical results indicate that information on qubit flows from qubit to detector, while quantum fluctuations which may cause dephasing of the qubit also inject to qubit. Furthermore, the measurement probability is frequency dependent in a short time scale and has

When the detuning between driven and bare resonator equals coupling strength, we will access the state of qubit more easily. In other words, we obtain the maximum measurement rate. Finally, we analyzed mixed effect caused by coupling between non-diagonal term and external variable. We found that the initial information of qubit is destroyed due to quantum tunneling between the qubit states.
