The program will bring together three different communities working on (i) closed quantum systems with time dependent Hamiltonians (including Many Body Localization) (ii) open quantum systems, and realistic descriptions of the external environment and (iii) gauge theory of coupling between matter and radiation. Each of these communities has the potential to gain from interactions with the other two. These three fields also demonstrate areas where there is a valuable interplay between theory and experiment. Many of these problems are at a scale where brute force numerical calculations fail, and so the ability to build “quantum simulation” experiments, and to correctly interpret their results becomes crucial.
Topics to be covered
- Terahertz and Infrared driven quantum matter
- Shaken Optical Lattices and Cold Atoms
- Floquet time crystals
- Localization-delocalization physics in quasi-periodically driven systems
- Dynamics of gauge theories
Eligibility Criteria: Graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and faculty members working in the field are welcome to apply.
ICTS is committed to building an environment that is inclusive, non-discriminatory and welcoming of diverse individuals. We especially encourage the participation of women and other under-represented groups.
