Welcome to the Quantum Simulations Laboratory!
The substrate of human intelligence and modern yet classical computing is matter made up of simple ordinary atoms. One of the greatest challenges of our time is to design a scalable substrate for artificial intelligence and quantum computing. The colorful and diverse life around us is also nothing but an ever changing and ever evolving arrangement of the unassuming atoms. How does these brainless chunks of matter group together and start breathing life? These are some of the questions that motivate us to study materials, as simple as ordinary solids to as complex as DNA, on the atomic scale. We use the principles of quantum mechanics and modern computers to unravel the intricate microscopic properties of the condensed matter and complex systems.
