Title: Complexity and Self Organization in Superconducting Metamaterials

Abstract: Macroscopic quantum devices are becoming reality not only for computational purposes but also as sensors and for other general applications In this talk we will focus on superconducting technology and analyze the emergence of coherence in coupled networks of meta-atoms made of units such as SQUIDS and Josephson junctions. These networks may operate classically in a negative permeability regime[1], induce intrinsic nonlinear localized modes and partial coherence in the form of chimeras[2], tame disorder through hysteretic loops or transmit through nonlinear frequency bands. In the quantum regime, on the other hand, meta-atoms may interact through injected electromagnetic fields and form propagating “quantum breathers”, i.e. compound semi-classical propagating modes induced by the nonlinearity of the qubit-field interaction [3]. These coherent modes generate self-induced transparency in the medium and in certain cases may also induce super-radiance. [1] N. Lazarides and G. P. Tsironis, rf SQUID metamaterials, Appl. Phys.
