Group Seminar via Zoom: Quantum simulation using Rydberg atoms
Zihan Wang, Imperial College, London
Group meeting via video conference, Zoom
Tuesday, January 25th, 09:00 am (MEZ)
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we are still holding our group seminars and journal clubs via video conference. This procedure enables us to continue our research, enhance discussions and exchange important information.
Simulation of quantum systems has been a challenging problem for classical computers due to the requirement of a huge amount of computer memory and the lack of approximation methods for some situations. A solution to this problem has been proposed by Prof Richard Feynman that computers can be made of quantum systems. Before having quantum computers, an analogue method of simulating a quantum system with a smaller controllable quantum system can be achieved, introducing the idea of quantum simulation. There are several mediums for achieving quantum simulation including neutral atoms, trapped ions, superconducting circuits and photons, etc. This talk will be focusing on quantum simulation using Rydberg atoms.
