The concept of quantum simulation is currently being realised in an increasing range of physical systems with expanding scope and success. Neutral atoms and photons are among the most promising building blocks of quantum simulators, owing to the remarkable degree to which they can nowadays be controlled in the laboratory. This workshop will explore the frontier of these exciting developments. It will thereby provide opportunities to identify current challenges and new directions in the field of quantum simulations by sharing latest results and ideas across different platforms, ranging from photonic settings and polariton systems to cold atom experiments. By bringing together experts on this range of topics, the workshop aims to provide an inspiring venue for discussing common interests and future perspectives for experiments as well as theory of quantum-many body systems in and out of equilibrium.
The workshop is organized jointly by the Center for Quantum Optics and Quantum Matter (CQOM) at Aarhus University and the Institute for Theoretical Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics (ITAMP) at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics.
