# MResetX operation

Namespace: Microsoft.Quantum.Measurement

Package: Microsoft.Quantum.QSharp.Core

Measures a single qubit in the X basis, and resets it to a fixed initial state following the measurement.

operation MResetX (target : Qubit) : Result


## Description

Performs a single-qubit measurement in the $X$-basis, and ensures that the qubit is returned to $\ket{0}$ following the measurement.

## Input

### target : Qubit

A single qubit to be measured.

## Output : Result

The result of measuring target in the Pauli $X$ basis.
