Summer School on Quantum Computing (Theory and Implementations), Sept. 5-9 2022

This summer school is a 5-day introduction to quantum computing, organized together with the International University Menéndez-Pelayo and sponsored by the Spanish Research Council (CSIC) and the European project SuperQuLAN. The school is oriented to PhD students, master and final year undergraduate students, as well as professionals interested in this exciting topic. No previous…

The spin-vector Langevin model

Our postdoctoral researcher Fernando J. Gómez-Ruiz together with a team of researchers from Donostia International Physics Center, Universidad de la Laguna, and the University of Luxembourg introduced the spin-vector Langevin model as an alternative benchmark for the performance of a quantum annealer.  State-of-the-art quantum annealers are an example of noisy intermediate-scale quantum devices in…

Phase Diagram of 1+1D Abelian-Higgs Model and Its Critical Point

Our Luca Tagliacozzo together with a team of researchers from Jagiellonian University of Cracow, and ICFO uncovers hidden gems lurking behind the Abelian-Higgs model in one spatial dimension and time.The Higgs mechanism, through which gauge bosons acquire a mass allows to understand how weak interactions can be short-ranged. This mechanism is absent in…
