Exploring strong correlations in flat bands

Project description

Quasiparticle dynamics put under the microscope

The concept of quasiparticles is a powerful tool to describe processes in many-body quantum systems. Quasiparticles emerging as a result of fractionalisation hold great promise for fault-tolerant quantum computing. Signatures of these exotic phases of matter remain sparse and mostly restricted to fractional quantum Hall states, despite being predicted to also occur in frustrated quantum magnets. The EU-funded FLATBANDS project will build a novel strontium gas microscope to study both fractional quantum Hall states and highly frustrated magnets. It will use ultracold atoms, which are a powerful tool to study quantum many-body systems. By following two complementary routes to studying strongly correlated many-body systems and topological order, FLATBANDS research outcomes will significantly impact quantum computing and condensed matter physics.
