Probing novel phases of matter with artificial quantum simulators: the interplay between disorder and correlations in equilibrium and out-of-equilibrium many-body quantum lattices

Please note that the job is no longer active!

ArtiQuS (ARTIficial QUantum Simulators) targets the realization of artificial structures properly tailored to reproduce controlled strongly correlated quantum. We will interface advanced theoretical methods with two different setups: ultracold atomic gases trapped in optical lattices and nanofabricated semiconductor quantum wells. In the specific, we plan to build up artificial lattice structures on which interacting quantum particles (bosonic particles with cold atoms, or fermionic particles with electrons in semiconductor structures) are able to tunnel from site to site.

In particular we will address two frontier themes in many-body quantum physics: the role played by disorder and the out-of-equilibrium dynamics of closed systems.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
