Research Area A

Research Area A - Quantum Correlated Many-Body Systems

The main goal of RA A is the development of a comprehensive understanding and control of interacting, correlated few- and many-body systems. Our initial focus will be on developing new tools for manipulating, detecting, and characterising quantum correlations in systems ranging from tens to tens of thousands of particles.

We will develop an understanding of and ultimately the ability to exploit open systems dynamics, which play a crucial role in many applications. Once we have mastered these quantum many-body systems, we will investigate their equilibrium and non-equilibrium properties in 1D, 2D, and 3D geometries and explore applications, including the quantum simulation of quantum magnetism, novel quantum phases, supersolids, and Haldane insulators, and the study of the quantum-to- classical transition and quantum non-locality in progressively larger systems.
