Quantum Information-Driven Science

K. Birgitta Whaley
University of California, Berkeley

The growth of quantum information science and technology has spurred advances in study of a broad range of physical, chemical and biological systems, generating novel probes and yielding new insights into fundamental behaviors. Physical and mathematical scientists are increasingly turning to quantum information for fresh insights and tools to study complex systems. I shall summarize this perspective with key examples drawn from diverse physical/chemical/biological settings and then focus on two frontiers of quantum science from my own research, namely study of macroscopic quantum states by controlled quantum feedback and reservoir engineering, and exploration of quantum dynamical contributions to biological processes by multidimensional spectroscopies.
