In a New Quantum Simulator, Light Behaves Like a Magnet

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email
LAUSANNE, Switzerland, March 26, 2019 — When following the laws of quantum mechanics, systems made of many interacting particles can display behavior so complex that they cannot be quantitatively described by even the most powerful computers. In 1981, visionary physicist Richard Feynman argued that such complex behavior could be simulated using a “quantum simulator” — an artificial device governed by the same quantum laws as the system being studied. Physicists at École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) have proposed a new quantum simulator — a laser-based device that could...Read full article
