Over the past few years, there has been very rapid development in hardware platforms for quantum simulation and quantum computing. On a fundamental level, these developments give us new opportunities to explore many-body physics far from equilibrium, and the interplay between concepts and techniques from quantum optics and many-body systems. It also opens connections beyond fundamental physics – especially to materials science, quantum measurement and sensing, and to broader applications of quantum computers.

Within CNQO, the QOQMS subgroup led by Prof. Andrew Daley explores the development, implementation, and applications of quantum simulation and computing. Much of our work is focused on developing roadmaps for systems, either from Atomic and Molecular physics, or Solid state systems, and we have strong national and international collaborations.

Our work is spread over a variety of areas, including:


There are also strong synergies with Open Quantum Systems.
