The Simon Lab chooses problems at the interface of condensed matter, quantum optics, and quantum information. Our science is enabled by technological innovation, particularly in Hamiltonian engineering, control, and electronics, allowing us to explore open questions in topological physics, photonic materials, and strong correlations.
For a broad overview of the science, here are a few talks given by Jon: Laughlin States of Light at KITP, Harvard ITAMP, KITP Topological Quantum Materials , Simons Center for Geometry and Physics , KITP Few-Body Physics, Manybody Cavity QED
