CONTROLLED DISSIPATION AND DYNAMICS IN QUANTUM SIMULATORS - Seminar by Andrew Daley

on the June 22, 2018

At 11:00am
Over the past few years, several experimental platforms from Atomic, Molecular and Optical (AMO) physics have begun to be used as quantum simulators.
These are devices where we have excellent microscopic understanding and control – allowing us to write down microscopic models under well-controlled approximations, and to adjust the parameters of these models to explore a wide range of phenomena arising from many-body physics. An important aspect of these systems that is often not widely discussed is that we also have excellent microscopic understanding of the dissipative dynamics of these systems, and means to engineer this dissipation (e.g., via controlled light scattering, or introduction of a reservoir gas). This provides new possibilities to observe the effects of dissipation on many-body dynamics, and also new tools to produce interesting many-body quantum states. I will discuss this, with examples from our recent theoretical work on dissipative engineering of spin-entangled states, and exploration of light scattering and its effects on the dynamics and decoherence of many-body states in optical lattices.
