Condensed Matter Seminar

D-Wave Systems builds superconducting quantum annealing processors that are primarily intended to be used for solving classical computation problems such as optimization and sampling. However, recent studies have shown how this computing platform can be used as a programmable quantum magnet that can be used to simulate physical systems relevant to the field of condensed matter physics. This lecture will provide a brief overview of D-Wave's technology, a summary of recently published quantum magnetism experiments, and a look ahead at next-generation quantum annealing processors
