Abstract:

This grant supported a workshop, held at Caltech in August 2004, that brought together experts in quantum mechanics, control theory, and dynamical systems for an exchange of ideas on the analysis, control, and design of quantum systems. One of the major goals of the workshop was to establish substantive technical interactions between physicists working on quantum applications and control and dynamical systems researchers who have insights and tools but lack a concrete sense of what problems are of primary interest. The workshop highlighted anticipated applications of quantum control in quantum information science, control of molecular reactions, and design of electronic and photonic nanostructures. The workshop results are available on the web and documented in a paper that has been submitted to the International Journal of Robust and Nonlinear Control.
