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.

SQCRAMscope microscopy

Our novel Scanning Quantum CRyogenic Atom Microscope places Bose-Einstein condensates over surfaces to image electron transport in strongly correlated or topologically nontrivial condensed matter materials.

About the Lab

LevLab explores uncharted regimes of quantum matter by pushing the experimental state-of-the-art in ultracold atomic physics, quantum optics, and condensed matter physics. 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 for exploring the organizing principles of novel quantum matter.  

The aims are our three projects are to: 

  1. Better our understanding of quantum nonequilibrium physics by creating 1D quantum gases of dysprosium, the most magnetic element;
  2. Create quantum spin glasses using atoms and photons and use them to build quantum neural networks for developing novel quantum-advantaged computational devices;
  3. Use our newly invented SQCRAMscope scanning probe microscope to directly image electron transport in quantum materials using the quantum gas as an exceptionally sensitive magnetic field detector.
