The authors investigate sectorial operators and semigroups acting on noncommutative \(L^p\)-spaces. They introduce new square functions in this context and study their connection with \(H^\infty\) functional calculus, extending some famous work by Cowling, Doust, McIntoch and Yagi concerning commutative \(L^p\)-spaces. This requires natural variants of Rademacher sectoriality and the use of the matricial structure of noncommutative \(L^p\)-spaces. They mainly focus on noncommutative diffusion semigroups, that is, semigroups \((T_t)_{t\geq 0}\) of normal selfadjoint operators on a semifinite von Neumann algebra \((\mathcal M,\tau )\) such that \(T_t\colon L^p(\mathcal M )\to L^p(\mathcal M )\) is a contraction for any \(p\geq 1\) and any \(t\geq 0\). They discuss several examples of such semigroups for which they establish bounded \(H^\infty\) functional calculus and square function estimates. This includes semigroups generated by certain Hamiltonians or Schur multipliers, \(q\)-Ornstein-Uhlenbeck semigroups acting on the \(q\)-deformed von Neumann algebras of Bozejko-Speicher, and the noncommutative Poisson semigroup acting on the group von Neumann algebra of a free group.
