Quantum Harmonic Oscillator Sonification
This work deals with the sonification of a quantum mechanical system and the processes that occur as a result of its quantum mechanical nature and interactions with other systems. The quantum harmonic oscillator is not only regarded as a system with sonifiable characteristics but also as a storage medium for quantum information. By representing sound information quantum mechanically and storing it in the system, every process that unfolds on this level is inherited and reflected by the sound. The main profit of this approach is that the sonification can be used as a first insight for two models: a quantum mechanical system model and a quantum computation model.
