Analogue Signals In Quantum Environments: The Physics and Mathematics of Propagation and Control

Alexandre Zagoskin (Loughborough University), Artur Sowa (University of Saskatchewan)

The essence of quantum technologies 2.0 (QT2.0) lies in building useful machines whose function depends on the coherent manipulation of quantum states involving multiparticle quantum superpositions and entanglement. QT2.0 include, but are not limited to, the famous paradigm of quantum computing aiming to circumvent some limitations of discrete algorithms. The realization of some of the QT2.0 goals requires a design based on the non-dissipative evolution of quantum states, and is predicated on building apparatus comprised of a large number of unit elements characterised by long coherence times and high degree of quantum state control. While reaching all these goals is still outside the capacity of current experimental technologies, a plethora of simpler, but still useful, quantum devices is feasible. Their design and function will bear a stronger resemblance to analogue electronics, and the processing of analogue signals.
Inspired by such a vision, we invite contributions from all areas of Mathematics, Physics, and Engineering, which pertain to the task of quantum state control in the presence of significant decoherence. Examples include the design of dissipative quantum environments and theoretical analysis of such environments; quantum metamaterials; quantum models of bio-systems and chemical systems; and approaches to signal, image, or information processing that either aim at applications to quantum technologies or warrant some hope of future implementation in quantum environments.
