Simulating Quantum Particles on a Lattice

Monday, November 8, 2021 12:00 pm - 12:00 pm EST

Join Chris Wilson, faculty member at the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) and the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, in conversation with scientific outreach manager John Donohue. They’ll discuss his latest journal article entitled “Quantum Simulation of the Bosonic Creutz Ladder with a Parametric Cavity” was published in Physical Review Letters on September 2, 2021. His team has developed a new quantum simulator that uses microwave photons in a superconducting cavity to simulate particles on a lattice similar to those found in superconductors or atomic nuclei.

Quantum Today is an exciting seminar series that pulls it themes from recently published scientific articles. Join us as we sit down in conversation with researchers to talk about their work and its impact.
