Hamilton Colloquium Series - Mikhail Lukin, Harvard University, "Quantum Dynamics of Strongly Interacting Systems"
We will discuss recent developments at a new scientific interface involving quantum many-body dynamics of strongly interacting systems. Combining advances in several sub-fields of physical science, this research is aimed at realizing new states of matter that can exist far from equilibrium, and exploring novel science and applications of such states. Two specific example systems include strongly interacting optical photons and disordered spin ensembles. We will discuss how these systems can be used for creating photonic molecules, exploring many-body localization, and investigating unique new applications.
