Shining light on new physics phenomena of quantum matter out of equilibrium
Quantum matter refers to states of matter where quantum physics operates on microscopic scales to produce exotic phenomena that bear no similarity to the macroscopic world. Realising novel phases of matter and building reliable quantum computers hinge on the ability to manipulate such quantum matter with high precision. The EU-funded PHASEQUANTROL project will shed new light on newly observed physics phenomena that are also common to macroscopic systems: glassy phases of matter and spontaneous symmetry breaking. The proposed research calls for an unprecedented level of synergy between different disciplines – reinforcement learning, optimal control, condensed matter physics and statistical mechanics. The research will address issues that may seem unrelated to advance our understanding of the dynamics of quantum many-body systems out of equilibrium.
