D04 – Synchronising quantum spins with long-range dissipation

Summary

This project will study a chain of atoms subject to correlated spin losses which decay spatially in a power law fashion. The platform offers the opportunity to study the formation of many-body quantum limit cycles from long-range dissipation, and it can be implemented using cooperative effects, both in cavity QED systems and in other experimental platforms of the CRC-TR 306. D04 paves also the way to study non-equilibrium phase transitions without conventional statistical mechanics counterpart, which can result from the competition (or the interplay) of long-range dissipation with quantum many-body interactions.
