Probing and simulating condensed matter with superconducting circuits
Andrew Higginbotham, Institute of Science and Technology Austria (ISTA)
This talk will highlight new opportunities for exploring condensed matter, enabled by revolutionary technological developments in quantum information science. Tools from quantum information can be adapted to probe fragile materials , revealing behavior that is invisible to conventional probes. It's also possible to simulate condensed matter by scaling up arrays of thousands of quantum circuit elements . The stage is set for exploring exciting topics in fundamental physics such as the electrodynamics of strongly correlated materials, the behavior of quantum materials in curved space, and stabilizing exotic superconductivity in electrical circuits.
