Peter Zoller: New Frontiers of Quantum Simulation with Atoms and Ions

Monday, December 1, 2014 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm EST

Peter Zoller, University of Innsbruck

Starting with an overview of quantum simulation with cold atoms and ions, the talk will focus on two recent developments. We will first discuss quantum simulation of lattice gauge theories both from a condensed matter and a high energy physics point of view. The second topic is open system quantum simulation, in particular on chiral spin networks, their quantum dynamics and realization with quantum optical systems.
