Dr. Islam and his research group are using experimental "quantum simulators" to extract information from such interacting quantum systems. They build a quantum system atom-by-atom, by laser-cooling and trapping atomic ions, and engineer flexible quantum Hamiltonians to address problems in quantum many-body physics and computation.
