Abstract:

This research is concerned with the theoretical and experimental control quantum dynamics phenomena. Advances include new algorithms to accelerate quantum control as well as provide physical insights into the controlled dynamics. The latter research includes the demonstration of a new protocol for extracting information about control mechanisms directly from laboratory data without the need for simulations. A special focus was also placed on understanding the topology of the underlying fundamental quantum control landscapes, as they dictate the ease of finding effective control fields. A new direction was opened up considering the material or molecular portions of the Hamiltonian as part of the controls along with an applied field. Finally, a review was prepared on the state of quantum control research including some speculation on directions ahead.
