In a new publication in Physical Review X, we investigate quench dynamics and how they are affected by variable-range interactions, which can now be realised in chains of trapped ions. We find counterintuitive features in which entanglement grows more slowly for longer range interactions.

Together with an experimental group in Innsbruck, we investigated dynamics in a tilted chain of cold atoms in an optical lattice.

Together with colleagues in Austria, we propose a scheme for measurement of many-body entanglement in a system of cold atoms in optical lattices. These ideas could be used for fundamental studies in many-body systems, and verification of quantum simulators.

In collaboration with our group, the experimental group of Hanns-Christoph Nägerl in Innsbruck has produced and characterised a metastable Mott insulator state - in which atoms are counter-intuitively pinned apart from each other because of attractive interactions.

Our group has received a grant from the Air Force Office of Scientific Research as part of a collaboration that will investigate the development of quantum computing to speed up the solution of stochastic differential equations, which arise in studying turbulent flow.
