The fabrication and control of macroscopic artificial quantum structures, such as qubits, qubit arrays, quantum annealers and, recently, quantum metamaterials, have witnessed significant progress over the last 15 year and reached the point where the existing theoretical and computational tools become inadequate for predicting, analysing, and simulating their behaviour. The development of what can be called the structural engineering of quantum devices – the toolkit allowing to efficiently predict and characterize the overall performance and reliability of large quantum coherent structures based on the properties of its unit elements, and design such structures – demands significant advances in theory supported by experimental research, and is therefore a domain where quantum physics and quantum engineering cannot be separated yet. Quantum metamaterials – artificial, quantum coherent optical media – can play an important role both as a testing ground for the development of such new tools and as a platform for the realization of quantum technologies.
