Classical dynamics of the multi-terminal Josephson junctions.
January 20, 2023 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm (CDT) MIST M102
Classical dynamics of the multi-terminal Josephson junctions.

Speaker: Gleb Finkelstein ( Duke University)

In multi-terminal Josephson junctions (MTJJ), several superconducting contacts are made to a common non-superconducting region. As a result, the state of a MTJJ is dependent on superconducting phase differences between several pairs of contacts. This 2\pi periodic dependence on several variables is reminiscent of the Bloch bands in a crystal, [...]

Nonequilibrium transport and thermalization in strongly disordered 2D electron systems

Nonequilibrium transport and thermalization in strongly disordered 2D electron systems

Speaker: Dragana Popovic (Florida State University)Host: Ar. Abanov

Understanding the dynamics of isolated disordered systems and its dependence on the range of interactions has been attracting a lot of research attention in recent years, but many questions remain open, especially in two spatial dimensions. At the same time, experiments have been limited mostly to those on synthetic quantum [...]
Analog quantum simulations with trapped-ion spin chains.
February 10, 2023 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm (CDT) MIST M102
Analog quantum simulations with trapped-ion spin chains.

Speaker: Guido Pagano (Rice University)Host: Ar. Abanov

Laser cooled trapped ions offer unprecedented control over both internal and external degrees of freedom at the single-particle level. They are considered among the foremost candidates for realizing quantum simulation and computation platforms that can outperform classical computers in specific tasks. In this talk I will show how linear arrays [...]

‘Dirty’ Quantum Magnets

Speaker: Itamar Kimchi (Georgia Tech)Host: Ar. Abanov

Studying quantum entanglement over the past decade has allowed us to make remarkable theoretical progress in understanding correlated many-body quantum systems. However in real materials electrons experience spatially random heterogeneities ("dirt") whose theoretical treatment, including strong correlations, has been a challenge. I will describe how synthesizing ideas from quantum information theory, statistical mechanics, and quantum field theory gives [...]
