Dynamics and Dissipation in Quantum Simulation Workshop

Monday, July 9, 2018 - 9:00am to Tuesday, July 10, 2018 - 5:00pm

The physics of out-of-equilibrium quantum many-particle systems underlies the behavior of important existing and emerging technologies. Better understanding and controlling these dynamics both involves interesting foundational research, and is likely to have a key role in the development of future generations of quantum technologies. Recent advances in experiments have made it possible to control and engineer dynamics, not only of closed quantum systems, but also in open many-body quantumsimulators. In this meeting, we will bring together experiment and theory of out-of-equilibrium dynamics in open quantum simulators, as well as representatives from industry, in order to develop new collaborations and set a platform for future advances in this area.

Organizing Committee:

Andrew Daley, Monika Schleier-Smith, Jonathan Keeling, Tom Baer, and Benjamin Lev

SU2P (a project connecting Scottish and Stanford Universities) and SPRC (Stanford Photonics Research Center)
