Simulating quantum states of matter: connecting theory to applications in science and technology. (2015–2019)
Quantum phenomena are ubiquitous and critical to the functioning of many modern technological devices, for example sensors and computer chips used in mobile phones. Although great strides have been made in recent decades in describing quantum phenomena theoretically, computational modelling is an essential ingredient to describe real experiments and devices. This project will develop the next generation of computational tools aimed at two major themes: characterizing topological states of matter, and modelling non-equilibrium phenomena. These tools will be invaluable for the design and modeling of quantum devices and novel materials, will then enable the development of the next generation of technological devices.
