C2QA Quantum Thursdays
"Engineering synthetic materials with quantum circuits"
Presented by Christie Chiu, Princeton University
Thursday, October 21, 2021, 12:00 pm — Videoconference / Virtual Event (see link below)
Quantum materials exhibit intriguing and potentially useful properties that are not yet fully understood but are thought to be uniquely described by quantum theory. If we can fully understand the underlying quantum physics, we might be able to develop materials practical for technological applications. Superconducting quantum circuits provide a unique playground for simulating such materials, where we use microwave photons to model electrons, create a lattice for them using microwave cavities, and mediate interactions between them with qubits. In this talk, I will share my recent work exploring the kinds of synthetic materials that we can create using quantum circuits, and close by sharing the story of my career path.
