Ultracold Atoms in Optical Lattices: Simulating quantum many-body systems

Maciej Lewenstein, Anna Sanpera, and Verònica Ahufinger


Quantum computers, although not yet available on the market, will revolutionise the future of information processing. Already now, quantum computers of special purpose, i.e., quantum simulators, are within reach. The physics of ultracold atoms, ions, and molecules offers unprecedented possibilities of control of quantum many systems, and novel possibilities of applications for quantum information and quantum metrology. Particularly fascinating is the possibility of using ultracold atoms in lattices to simulate condensed matter or even high energy physics. This book provides a comprehensive ove ... More

Keywords: ultracold atomic gases, molecular gases, quantum simulators, optical lattices, atomic systems, many-body physics
