Researchers propose a new system for quantum simulation (World Specific Developments)
Posted by: Site Administration
Researchers from the universities in Mainz, Frankfurt, Hamburg, and Ulm have proposed a new platform for quantum simulation. In a theoretical paper recently published in Physical Review Letters, they show that a combined system of ultracold trapped ions and fermionic atoms could be used to emulate solid state physics. This system may outperform possibilities of existing platforms as a number of phenomena found in solid state systems are naturally included, such as the fermionic statistics of the electrons and the electron-sound wave interactions.
