Harnessing quantum systems with long-range interactions
Zhexuan Gong, University of Maryland, College Park
A distinctive feature of atomic, molecular, and optical systems is that interactions between particles are often long-ranged. Together with control techniques from quantum optics, these long-range interacting systems could be harnessed to achieve faster quantum information processing and to simulate novel quantum many-body phenomena. At the heart of these potential applications is the still-lacking understanding of emergent locality in long-range interacting quantum systems. In this talk, I will present our recent theoretical and experimental progress towards such an understanding. In particular, I will highlight the effects of long-range interactions on information propagation and entanglement creation.
