Quantum Phases of Fermions in Optical Lattices: The Low-Temperature Frontier

The workshop will bring together theoretical and experimental experts to discuss current challenges fermionic quantum simulation, quantum magnetism, new strategies for creating low-temperature many-body states, quantum thermalization and out-of-equilibrium systems, and microscopic probes and applications to quantum computing and quantum metrology. The experimental platforms will focus on approaches based on neutral fermionic atoms and molecules in optical lattices and optical tweezers.
