Artificially creating strongly correlated electrons

Bioscience Lecture

Professor Matthias Christandl from QMATH gives a Copenhagen Bioscience Lecture on "Artificially creating strongly correlated electrons" on May 18, 2021. 

Matthias Christandl is one of the keynote speakers, heading newly established research consortia awarded through the Novo Nordisk Foundation’s Challenge Programme 2020, concerning the development of quantum simulators to advance our understanding of complex biological processes.

Understanding the electronic structures of molecules is of key importance to computational molecular biology. Since the correlations of electrons are quantum-mechanical in nature, this poses a challenge for our current computing infrastructure, which only operates with classical states. In his talk, Matthias will explain how we imagine artificially creating strongly correlated electrons in a system of quantum dots – and how we can measure their quantumnes. It is a step on the way to the quantum simulation of molecules.

The Copenhagen Bioscience lectures will take place on-line on May 18, 2021 from 4:00-5:30 pm.
