Quantum Simulators (QS) are the systems that can address, deepen our understanding of, and ultimately solve some of the most challenging problems of contemporary science: from quantum many body dynamics, through static and transient high Tc superconductivity, to the design of new materials.
DYNAMITE will design, realize in the labs, and characterize a new generation of QS with ultracold atoms and beyond, including also Rydberg atoms and trapped ions.
These systems aim to accomplish the following 3 general objectives:
These systems will be used to seek for the following when they are realized experimentally:
Design and control novel types of topological and chiral order, with potential applications to quantum computing and quantum memories
Design and study interaction between topological order and local symmetry breaking, as well as “weak” breaking of the local symmetry
Study statics of confinement-deconfinement transition, and more importantly its dynamics, relation to absence/presence of thermalizability
Experiment and theory will be intertwined in DYNAMITE. Its outcomes will provide researchers unprecedented control over key events at the cutting edge of quantum manybody physics
