In the present paper, we extend the notion of quantum time shift, and the related results obtained in [Accardi, Barhoumi and Ouerdiane, Infin. Dimens. Anal. Quantum Probab. Relat. Top. 9: 215–248, 2006], from representations of current algebras of the Heisenberg Lie algebra to representations of current algebras of the Oscillator Lie algebra. This produces quantum extensions of a class of classical Lévy processes much wider than the usual Brownian motion. In particular, this class of processes includes the Meixner processes and, by an approximation procedure, we construct quantum extensions of all classical Lévy processes with a Lévy measure with finite variance. Finally, we compute the explicit form of the action, on the Weyl operators of the initial space, of the generators of the quantum Markov processes canonically associated to the above class of Lévy processes. The emergence of the Meixner classes in connection with the renormalized second order white noise, is now well known. The fact that they also emerge from first order noise in a simple and canonical way comes somehow as a surprise.
