The results of an interaction of a quantum state of quark with QCD vacuum, where the latter plays a role of environment, could be treated as decoherence. This may have direct implications for the confinement of quarks phenomenon.
The general description and discussion of this process is given. Characteristics from quantum optics and information theory (purity, fidelity, von Neumann entropy) are proposed as means for numerical analysis of the process of interaction of quark colour state with stochastic vacuum.
Problems of stability of colour particles motion and order-chaos transitions are briefly discussed. It is shown that there should be a connection between the properties of QCD stochastic vacuum and Higgs boson mass and self interaction coupling constant.
The behaviour of squeezed and entangled quantum states, the interaction of colour superpositions and multiparticle states with stochastic QCD vacuum is described. It is shown that it leads to a fully mixed quantum state with equal probabilities for different colours. Decoherence rate is found to be proportional to the product of the distance between colour charges and the time during which this interaction has taken place. I.e. such an interaction seems to lead naturally to confinement of quarks.
