Persistent control of a transmon qubit is performed by a feedback protocol based on continuous heterodyne measurement of its fluorescence. By driving the qubit and cavity with microwave signals whose amplitudes depend linearly on the instantaneous values of the quadratures of the measured fluorescence field, we show that it is possible to stabilize permanently the qubit in any targeted state. Using a Josephson mixer as a phase-preserving amplifier, it was possible to reach a total measurement efficiency η = 35 %, leading to a maximum of 59 % of excitation and 44 % of coherence for the stabilized states. The experiment demonstrates multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) analog markovian feedback in the quantum regime.
