Title: [Joint CQSE & NCTS Seminar] Quantum Simulators with Two Species of Atoms: Progress, Challenges, and Future Applications
Speaker: Prof. Shih-Kuang Tung (National Tsing Hua University)
Time: May 5, 2023, 14:30-15:30
Place: NCTS Physics Lecture Hall, 4F, Chee-Chun Leung Cosmology Hall, NTU
Atoms are ideal quantum objects; abundant in nature and each atom of the
same kind is perfectly identical. Due to their universal properties, atoms have been used
for quantum simulations for decades. With atomic quantum simulators, numerous
important many-body models have been observed and studied, including the Superfluid-
Mott insulator transition, Tonks-Girardeau gas, BEC-BCS crossover, and BKT
transition in 2D atomic systems. As our ability to control these simulators advances, we
also seek to add new complexity to them, for example, the integration of a second
species. In this talk, I will report on our progress in creating a quantum simulator with
two species of atoms and discuss our plans for future applications.
