Quantum simulations shed light on strong light-matter coupling
Quantum optics investigates phenomena involving light and its interactions with matter at submicroscopic levels. Multiple quantum emitters strongly coupled to the same bath demonstrate interesting radiative properties such as directional emission, chirality, and sub-radiance. The EU-funded QuSLAM project will conduct quantum simulations of artificial quantum systems based on ultracold atoms strongly coupled to band structures to find ways to develop systems with long-lived radiative states. Research will shed further insight into the fundamental and technical issues that limit the coupling strength between quantum systems and state-of-the-art experimental platforms. Applications mainly include metrology and quantum computing.
