Frontiers of Interacting Systems of Rydberg Atoms

Thursday, June 1, 2017 - 8:30am to Friday, June 2, 2017 - 4:00pm
ITAMP 60 Garden St Cambridge, MA USA

This workshop will focus on quantum many-body physics with Rydberg atoms, including quantum simulation of spin models, correlated dynamics in many-body systems, applications in quantum information processing and understanding coherence properties and experimental challenges in such systems. The experimental platforms discussed will include neutral atoms trapped in optical lattices or optical tweezers as well as polaritons in atomic ensembles.

Organizing Committee: 

Ahmed Omran (Harvard University), Hannes Bernien (Harvard University), Hannes Pichler (ITAMP), Mikhail Lukin (Harvard University).
