K. Rajibul Islam

Assistant Professor

Dr. K. Rajibul Islam​Simulating interacting quantum many-body systems on a conventional computer is hard, and often practically impossible. Because, the laws of quantum mechanics are not inbuilt in the workings of a (classical) computer. Dr. Rajibul 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.
