Quantum Simulation with Dysprosium
Dy Quantum Simulation

How does quantum matter thermalize? Quantum many-body physics and thermalization are explored using quantum Bose and Fermi gases of the most magnetic element, dysprosium. These quantum gases were first created by LevLab.

Many-Body Cavity QED
Many-Body Cavity QED

Quantum neural networks, quantum spin glasses, and quantum liquid crystals are studied using photon-mediated interactions provided by our novel multimode cavity QED-BEC system.

About the Lab

LevLab is a joint AMO & CM group that explores uncharted regimes of quantum matter by pushing the experimental state-of-the-art. At a billionth of a degree above absolute zero, laser-cooled and trapped gases of neutral atoms are among the coldest objects in the universe. We employ these quantum gases as versatile testbeds and sensors for exploring novel quantum matter and their applications. Our recent projects focus on:

• Quantum neural network computing using quantum gas multimode cavity QED
    -We realized a versatile set of novel photon-mediated interactions among atoms

• 1D quantum gases of the most magnetic atom, dysprosium, to study quantum nonequilibrium physics
    -We discovered novel “quantum many-body scar states” and made a dipolar quantum Newton’s cradle

• Imaging transport in condensed matter materials with a BEC using our invention, the Scanning Quantum CRyogentic Atom Microscope (SQCRAMscope)
    -We took the first local images of electron nematic transport in iron-based high-Tc superconductors
