Topics for discussion - First week (Monday, August 2nd, 2010)
New experimental opportunities - feedback control in dissipative systems
- - superconducting CQED -> all electronic control
- - optomechanics
- - nanomechanics
What is the role of theory in lab control
- - Now (has some theory result been widely applied?)
- - In the future
- - Attention to practical reality
Controllability of open quantum system (esp. non-markovian systems)
Dissipation/Errors in quantum simulation: do they (as well as the adopted model) affect the veracity of simulations?
Efficiency of quantum simulations: cost/overheads of measurement hinder the efficiency?
Generalization of "thermodynamics"? (mixed - pure state transitions)
- What state transitions are permissible?
Uncertainty, flexibility, constraints, robustness of control strategies.
Understanding practicalities, constructing control pulses
What is the ultimate goal in this field?
What are the characteristics/challenges in room temperature quantum control?
Quantum control in bio-systems
