The main long-term goals of our theoretical research group are to understand and control large interacting quantum systems, as well as to design and create new ones.
Welcome to the Gorshkov Research Group
We are a theoretical research group working at the interface of
quantum optics, atomic and molecular physics, condensed matter physics, and quantum information science.
AMO systems with long-range interactions, such as polar molecules and Rydberg atoms, are arguably the most controllable, tunable, and strongly interacting quantum systems.
Photons usually don't interact with each other. A grand long-term challenge that we try to solve in the quantum optics part of our research is to implement and study strongly interacting photons.
Topological phases, such as fractional quantum Hall states, are phases with no local order parameter and are instead characterized by more exotic quantities such as peculiar entanglement properties.
The unique internal structure of ultracold alkaline-earth atoms (atoms in the second column of the periodic table) makes them ideal for quantum computing and clock applications, as well as for studying exotic many-body physics.
