Networks of open quantum systems with feedback have become an active area of research for applications such as quantum control, quantum communication and coherent information processing. A canonical formalism for the interconnection of open quantum systems using quantum stochastic differential equations (QSDEs) has been developed by Gough, James and co-workers and has been used to develop practical modeling approaches for complex quantum optical, microwave and optomechanical circuits/networks… 
The SLH framework for modeling quantum input-output networks
The SLH framework is reviewed, a powerful modeling framework for networked quantum systems that is naturally endowed with properties such as modularity and hierarchy, and the prospects for modeling integrated implementations of quantum input-output networks are discussed.
Factorization of Linear Quantum Systems with Delayed Feedback
We consider the transfer functions describing the input-output relation for a class of linear open quantum systems involving feedback with nonzero time delays. We show how such transfer functions can
Exciting a Bound State in the Continuum through Multiphoton Scattering Plus Delayed Quantum Feedback.
This work shows, in particular, that single-photon trapping via multiphoton scattering can occur without band edge effects or cavities, the essential resource being instead the delayed quantum feedback provided by a single mirror or the emitters themselves.
An Engineer's Brief Introduction to Microwave Quantum Optics and a Single-Port State-Space Representation
The method was derived directly from first principles of QION to include a state-space representation and a transfer function for a single port quantum network and serves as a case study to highlight how microwave methodologies can be applied in open quantum systems.
Generating nonclassical states of motion using spontaneous emission
Nonclassical motional states of matter are of interest both from a fundamental perspective but also for their potential technological applications as resources in various quantum processing tasks
Enhancing a slow and weak optomechanical nonlinearity with delayed quantum feedback
This work proposes a protocol that allows photons propagating in a waveguide to interact with each other through multiple bounces off an optomechanical system, illustrating that large photon–photon interactions mediated by mechanical motion may be within experimental reach.
Quantum stabilization of microcavity excitation in a coupled microcavity–half-cavity system
We analyze the quantum dynamics of a two-level emitter in a resonant microcavity with optical feedback provided by a distant mirror (i.e., a half cavity) with a focus on stabilizing the
Quantum Non-Markovian Collision Models from Colored-Noise Baths
A quantum collision model (CM), also known as repeated interactions model, can be built from the standard microscopic framework where a system S is coupled to a white-noise bosonic bath under the
Comparison between continuous- and discrete-mode coherent feedback for the Jaynes-Cummings model
This work demonstrates the fundamental difference between the continuous-mode case, which represents a truly dissipative mechanism, and the discrete- mode case that is in principle based on a coherent excitation exchange process.
Coherent LQG Control, Free-Carrier Oscillations, Optical Ising Machines and Pulsed OPO Dynamics
Broadly speaking, this thesis is about nonlinear optics, quantum mechanics, and computing. More specifically, it covers four main topics: Coherent LQG Control, Free-Carrier Oscillations, Optical


Quantum Feedback Networks: Hamiltonian Formulation
The model is non-Markovian for finite time delays, but in the limit where these delays vanish the model is recovered a Markov model and the rules for introducing feedback into arbitrary quantum networks are deduced.
Transfer function approach to quantum control-part I: Dynamics of quantum feedback systems
A quantum optical closed-loop, including a plant and controller, is developed and its fundamental structural properties are analyzed extensively from a purely quantum mechanical point of view, in order to facilitate the use of control theory in microscopic world described by quantum theory.
Photonic Circuits with Time Delays and Quantum Feedback.
A matrix product state approach is developed to solve the quantum stochastic Schrödinger equation with time delays, which accounts in an efficient way for the entanglement of nodes with the stream of emitted photons in the waveguide, and thus the non-Markovian character of the dynamics.
Photonic Quantum Circuits with Time Delays
We study the dynamics of photonic quantum circuits consisting of nodes coupled by quantum channels. We are interested in the regime where time delay in communication between the nodes is significant.
A Frequency Domain Condition for the Physical Realizability of Linear Quantum Systems
Under suitable assumptions, the paper shows that the question of physical realizability is equivalent to a frequency domain (J,J) -unitary condition, which is important in controller synthesis since it is the transfer function matrix of the controller which determines the closed loop system behavior.

A brief review of some recent developments in quantum feedback networks and control is provided, primarily in the context of open linear quantum stochastic systems.
Time-Delayed Quantum Feedback Control.
It is shown that the dynamics can be mapped onto a fictitious series of cascaded quantum systems, where the system is driven by past versions of itself, to create a unidirectional feedback loop.

For this class of quantum systems, a solution to the H∞ control problem can be obtained in terms of a pair of complex algebraic Riccati equations, and the question of physical realizability of the resulting quantum controllers is related to a bounded real property.
