Experimental Quantum Information Processing
Prof. Phil Richerme
Individual atoms can be trapped, collected into arrays, and cooled to their quantum ground states to form a synthetic quantum material. These engineered quantum systems can be studied and reprogrammed in a well-controlled laboratory environment, allowing for investigations of quantum many-body systems that are inaccessible in real materials or through numeric simulations. Undergraduate students assist in the development of laser, optical, electronic, and vacuum systems needed to run the apparatus.
