Networks of coupled photon Bose-Einstein condensates: when condensation becomes a computation

Project description

A photonics approach to solving complex mathematical problems

Spin glasses are magnetic materials whose magnetic orientation seems to be fully random as if they are frozen. These materials serve as models for large-scale mathematical problems, for example, in artificial intelligence, logistics and DNA sequencing, that are not easy to solve using current computer technology. The EU-funded BEC-NETWORKS project plans to develop Bose-Einstein condensates from photons by firing multiple laser beams into optical microcavities. This experimental platform will enable researchers to perform ultrafast simulations of classical spin systems and solve the ground-state problem in spin glasses.
