We consider the open quantum random walks on the crystal lattices and investigate the central limit theorems for the walks. On the integer lattices the open quantum random walks satisfy the central limit theorems as was shown by Attal et al (Ann Henri Poincaré 16(1):15–43, 2015). In this paper we prove the central limit theorems for the open quantum random walks on the crystal lattices. We then provide with some examples for the Hexagonal lattices. We also develop the Fourier analysis on the crystal lattices. This leads to construct the so called dual processes for the open quantum random walks. It amounts to get Fourier transform of the probability densities, and it is very useful when we compute the characteristic functions of the walks. In this paper we construct the dual processes for the open quantum random walks on the crystal lattices providing with some examples.
