Superconducting Qubits for analog Quantum Simulation

Linnaeus colloquium: Superconducting qubits for analog quantum simulation

Talk by Univ. -Prof. Dr. Gerhard Kirchmair, Junior Research Director at the Institut für Quantenoptik und Quanteninformation, Innsbruck.


In this talk I want to present the research activities of the Superconducting Quantum Circuits group at the Institute for Quantum Optics and Quantum Information in Innsbruck.
I will give an introduction to circuit quantum electrodynamics and out 3D circuit QED architecture. I will show how we want to use this architecture to realize a platform for guantum many body simulations of dipolar XY models on 2D lattices using state of the art circuit QED technology. The cental idea is to exploit the naturally occurring dipolar interactions between 3D superconducting qubits to simulate models of interacting quantum spins. The ability to arrange the qubits on essentially arbitrary geometries allow us to design spin models with more than nearest-neighbor interaction in variuos geometries. 
Combining these ideas with our waveguide architecture, will allow us to study open system dynamics short range direct interactions, long range photon mediated interaction wia the waveguide and the dissipative coupling to an open system.
