We solve the output regulator problem for a system described by a Neumann boundary controlled anti-stable one-dimensional Schrödinger equation by the backstepping approach. The output to be controlled is not required to be measured and its observation operator is assumed to be admissible for a certain Co-semigroup that is related to the original system, while the measurements used for control are located at the boundary First we show that the open-loop system is well-posed. Then we find a state feedback control law to solve the output regulator problem by the backstepping method. We design a finite-dimensional reference observer and an infinite-dimensional disturbance observer. Based on this observer, we propose an output feedback controller to achieve output regulation.
