CANCELLED - Princeton Quantum Colloquium - Adiel Stern (Weizmann Institute of Science) "The return of the Anyons - news from the fractional quantum Hall effect" - McDonnell A01
Mon, Apr 15, 2024, 12:20 pm1:20 pm

The fractional quantum Hall effect, first observed some four decades ago,  is a system where Anyons - particles of fractional charges and fractional quantum statistics - flourish. In the last year, several important developments have brought the physics of Anyons back into the limelight. In particular, Anyons were shown to be quantum…

Princeton Quantum Colloquium: "Benchmarking Analog Quantum Simulators based on Emergent Randomness," Soonwon Choi (MIT)
Mon, Nov 1, 2021, 12:30 pm12:30 pm

Abstract: Recent advances in experiments allowed us to simulate a variety of interesting quantum many-body phenomena from thermalization and localization to universal scaling across phase transitions. Despite the rapid progress, however, one of the most basic tasks to characterize such analog quantum simulators remains challenging: how can we…
