The coherence-breaking channels play a signiﬁcant role in quantum information theory. We study the coherence-breaking channels for qubit systems and give a method to amend the coherence-breaking channels by applying unitary operations. For given incoherent channel Φ, we give a necessary and suﬃcient condition for the channel to be a coherence-breaking channel and amend it via unitary operations. For incoherent channels Φ that are not coherence-breaking ones, we consider Φ ∘ Φ and give the conditions for coherence-breaking and channel amendment as well.
