Simulations of Topological Phases in Superconducting Circuits

Project description

Laying the foundations for a model system in which to study exotic states of matter

Physicists historically left the subject of topology (the study of shapes and their arrangement in space) to their colleagues in mathematics. However, in recent decades physicists have discovered that topology provides unique insight into many exotic states of matter with a particularly successful application to condensed matter physics. Pioneers in this endeavour received the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2016. The EU-funded TOPOCIRCUS project will investigate a special type of superconducting circuit as a promising platform for the simulation of exotic topological effects. Its validation could spur tremendous innovation and discovery regarding exotic states of mater for novel devices.
