Periodic driving as a tool towards a quantum simulator

prof. dr hab. Jakub Zakrzewski

Uniwersytet Jagielloński

Cold atomic systems form a versatile, well controlled tools that enable modeling of different quantum phenomena. In that sense they fulfil the requirement for a quantum symulator as envisioned by Feynman – one may build up well controlled systems that model physical situations difficult to analyse by standard theoretical tools. I hope to show the examples where controlled periodic driving of cold opticla systems enables modelling of nontrivial topological models, fractional quantum Hall effect or dynamical gauge fields.
