Simulations of quantum electrodynamics – our latest publisher’s pick

In our latest Publisher’s Pick article, we interview Francesco Pepe, a member of the QUANTUM collaboration of the Italian National Institute of Nuclear Physics (INFN), involving Simone Notarnicola (SISSA) and Professors Elisa Ercolessi (Bologna), Giuseppe Marmo (Naples), Paolo Facchi and Saverio Pascazio (Bari).

Paolo Facchi, Francesco Pepe and Saverio Pascazio.

Paolo Facchi, Francesco Pepe and Saverio Pascazio.

Their latest Fast Track Communication addresses the problems of implementing quantum simulations of quantum electrodynamics (QED) in cold atomic systems. In particular that the electric field must take values in a finite set.

Read the full interview where they discuss their change in paradigm and the future work they are planning.
