Jad C. Halimeh Awarded Emmy Noether Grant
Halimeh's research is built upon two fundamental pillars. The first pillar has a technological focus, concerned with theoretical proposals for experimentally feasible quantum simulators of gauge theories. The second pillar delves into the phenomenological aspect, concentrating on the exploration and comprehension of far-from-equilibrium dynamics within gauge theories. The goal of the research is to facilitate the investigation of high-energy and many-body physics on tunable tabletop quantum simulators, with the hope that they will allow us to gain deep insights into the nonperturbative far-from-equilibrium dynamics of gauge theories beyond what classical methods can provide.
"I am very passionate about this line of research as it paves the way to investigating outstanding high-energy questions on easily accessible quantum devices, ushering in a venue complementary to dedicated particle colliders.", says the physicist.
