The main long-term goals of our theoretical research efforts are to understand and control large interacting quantum systems, as well as to design and create new ones. To achieve these goals, we integrate tools and methods from quantum optics, atomic and molecular physics, condensed matter physics, and quantum information science. Two specific goals of our research program are (1) to develop powerful new quantum technologies, including quantum computers, quantum communication devices, precise clocks, and accurate sensors; and (2) to use AMO (atomic, molecular, and optical) systems to study exotic many-body phenomena that are difficult to or impossible to access with other systems, with particular emphasis on far-out-of-equilibrium phenomena, time evolution, and dissipation. Examples of recent topics of interest include topological matter, strongly interacting photons, long-range-interacting AMO systems, and quantum speed limits to entanglement generation. The work is in close collaboration with on-going experimental and theoretical efforts at the Joint Quantum Institute (JQI) and at the Joint Center for Quantum Information and Computer Science (QuICS).
